Historical Maps and Photos

Travel back to the past of 1872, fifty-three years since the start of colonial times. Or to 1967, a couple of years after Singapore's independence from Malaysia. Singapore was still largely unpopulated compared to now, and had a smaller landmass before reclamation.

Mouseover the different markers to look through the old photos which capture a single location in a snapshot, testimony to how fast the Singapore urban environment changes. Heritage buildings have seldom lasted long in their original facades, with run-of-the-mill buildings faring even worse. Like some old sea walls left behind in the Katong area, the name Tanah Merah is one of history's remnants, our very own Red Cliff by the sea. Pulau Blakang Mati remains on the map, in a much much different time and place from the present resort world.

  1. Great source of reflection of history. Can tell the amount of reclamation and changes to the shape of the island from 1967 to now.

  2. It really does sound interesting! Maps are such an important part of life–whether they are made of paper or are digital–and it would interesting to learn their history and how they came to be.

  3. Loved the map. WIll be back to look closely again when I have more time.

    There is this marker for Changi Airport on the map but it's marked 1970s. Changi Airport only came about in 1981. The land reclamation project only began in 1975 but there weren't any planes on it at that time :)

  4. An undeniably good post, with an exceptionally interactive old map of Singapore. Just the kind which complements my sharing of a First Day Cover featuring the old maps of Singapore!

  5. I was in Singapore as a child from 1953 to 1955, where my father was on active service in the British Army. I have such intense memories of the island and the city: the sounds, the smells and visual impressions of the blend of Chinese, Malayan, Indian and British cultures. The period remains for me the most intense in my life. I've never been able to return, but I shall cherish those memories untill my final days. But a practical point: Does anyone know on which map and where the former estate of British Service families can be found. It won't exist anymore, but I'd love to see it on an old map. I rememer we lived in Cheney Court. Thanks for any hints! Stewart Coltman Stephanholt@gmx.net

  6. I lived off the Clementi Road in Goodwood estate in the early 1970's. As with 'anonymous' above, it is the most vivid period of my life. Especially the smells! Fortunately I AM returning next week - with my grown-up children who are coming, they say, 'to see you cry, Dad'! I know that my old home is now a college but I am also going to try to find Bukit Timah and Pasir Pangang. Mike Whitehouse

  7. I lived in Singapore aged 9-11 with my Father who was in the Royal Army Service Corps (which became the Royal Corps of Transport) from May 1964 until May 1966, firstly in a Forces Guest House in Pasir Panjang, to a block of Forces flats in Paya Leba, to a Hiring at 37 Hemsley Avenue, Serangoon Garden Estate until 1965 finally to 16 Goodwood Road until repatriated. I attended the Alexandra Junior School and Prince Phillip came to visit but I don't rememberr the date. As with both the Anonymouses above it was the most intense and enjoyable period of my life, having had friends of all the nationalities. I remember the smells, the enormous monsoon drain in the city, the hawkers, the outdoor markets, the Chinese Street Operas (which I adored) and Chengs Bar in Serangoon. The huge statue of the Buddha in Haw Par Villa, A pub in Holland Village; Gillman Barracks swimming pool, Dover Road swimming pool and the cinema and bowling alley plus the Britannia Club swimming pool. The little museum with the statue of the Japanese Samurai which used to scare me every time we visited! The monkeys in the Botannical Gardens who pulled my hair. I also had a couple of stints in the British Military Hospital I think it was the Alexandra? Does anybody else have these memories? Im trying to find maps of the Forces Married Quarters and the old Singapore I remember so vividly. I managed to find a website showing photographs of Singapore in the 1960s. I had a small Brownie camera and a few slides my Father took but if anybody has any photographs of the estates and other places I mentioned above I would love to see them.
