Do you know that the Singapore Management University is built on the site of an old jail? It is for this reason, that the then Bras Basah Road was also commonly referred to as “Lau Kah Ku Keng Khau”, which means "Mouth of the Old Prison" in Hokkien. Join National Museum of Singapore’s researcher, Ng Ching Hui, as he shares more about this historically-significant jail, its convict labourers and their role in the development of early Singapore.
