Entertainment: Forms Of Leisure In Singapore 1920s-1970s
Published in 2017 to coincide with the 130th anniversary of the National Museum of Singapore, this book offers a visual feast of images from the museum's rich collections. As the nation's oldest purpose-built museum, it has played a major role in shaping Singapore's social landscape over the years through a variety of media. This book covers the site-specific entertainment parks, cinema, radio and music from the turn of the 20th century until the 1970s. It takes the reader on a nostalgic journey through these early forms of recreation, while first-person accounts bring memories to life. This is a comprehensive analysis of the emergence of leisure practices in the era of early modernity in Singapore.
