Pioneers of Singapore: Builders of a Better Tomorrow
Illustrated by Alan Bay
We always hear the names Raffles or Farquhar whenever we discuss Singapore’s early history. But what of the many other pioneers who were just as important? What are their stories?
Accompanied by lively, charming illustrations, Pioneers of Singapore brings you the accounts of thirty-five key figures in Singapore’s colonial history. Some of them include:
- Who broke up one of the biggest communal riots in Singapore?
- Who founded the first hospital in Singapore that was built entirely without help from the government?
- Who produced the first comprehensive map of Singapore and designed most of its early buildings?
