Yesterday Once More

Yesterday Once More displays a selection of Singapore picture postcards ranging from as early as 1893 to that of pre-war 1940s. These postcards are part of the 500 picture postcards donated to the Singapore Philatelic Museum in July 2006 by Singapore's renowned philatelist, Professor Cheah Jin Seng.

The humble postcards started off as an economical and speedier means of communication. When photographs were added to the cards, the role of postcards expanded. They documented the tales of intrepid travellers, and archived the landscapes, street scenes, people, cultural activities in Singapore since the late 1800s.

These postcards are a treat to collectors, history lovers, and photography enthusiasts who can now see the collection up close. It is also an opportunity to travel back in time to see the vanished past of yesterday captured in the vintage pictures of these postcards. The business and commercial areas in Singapore were especially well documented by picture postcards. You will be able to witness the stunning transformation of these areas as well as other parts of Singapore through this travelling exhibition.
