2. Early Chinese immigrant:

3. Harbour and dockside:

4. Indian milk seller:

5. Letter writer:

6. Chinese hand puppets:

7. Rikshaw puller:

8. Coyller Quay:

9. Empress place:

10. Life during occupation: This was when the Japanese occupied. They interred and

history of Singapore.

11. Signing of pact: In 1819, a British official named, Sir Stamford raffles arrived in Singapore
