This is a photographic essay about these early architectural forms and living spaces. From the lush expanse of colonial-era Princess Elizabeth Park estate to the brick-clad heights of Pickering Street, these photographs may not be turn-of-the-century archaic but neither are they contemporary enough to be familiarly recognized. As pictorial records of our first homes in historically significant and newly emerging estates then, they are an invaluable window into Singapore's changing housing landscape in the 50s and beyond. The 27 public housing estates featured in this collection are expunged forever.
