500 postcards of Singapore Apr 26, 2009
Singapore 500 Early PostcardsI found it very interesting having recently visited Singapore. I was fascinated by the colonial times and also the blend of the modern with the past. The postcards gave me a really good story of the past and I am really pleased with my purchase.
