singapore past [updated]

found two galleries with 'old' photos of singapore. 'old' is relative, of course. things change here so fast that even photos from five years ago seem very different. so it's pretty amazing to look back at photos before digital cameras.

if you've got your camera while your out, take a photo of your surroundings 'cos you'll never know when it's going to change.

Singapore (1988-1990) by Rudi Knust and
Singapore - 1978 by Nikola Gruev.

p.s. just got some nice prints of old singapore... thank you! =)
