Can you spot Mr Lee Kuan Yew in these old photos?
The National Archives of Singapore (NAS) has uploaded its collection of photos and manuscripts onto a new Citizen Archivist Portal. It is inviting the public to write photo captions and transcribe the manuscripts.
I browsed the collection, and spotted my father in this set of photos. I think they were taken on election day on 21 September 1963, days after Singapore joined Malaysia. He was visiting Tanjong Pagar CC, which was a polling station in his constituency.
Many more photos are waiting to be discovered and tagged on the NAS portal. Do take a look at http://www.nas.gov.sg/citizenarchivist. Help us make the records easier to search and discover, and piece. more of Singapore’s history together!
