Archives Invites – Mok Ly Yng
Curious Tales from Singapore Maps


Community histories unfold in this series that traces Singapore’s social past with help from the archives.
 
How were the Himalayas, Java and Singapore once related cartographically? How did the “tiger” end up in New Zealand? What was the link between the Dunkirk evacuation during the Second World War and the mapping of Singapore in post-war years? What is the relationship between the book Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Clarke Quay?

All these curiosities and more will be revealed by map consultant Mok Ly Yng as he shares a selection of stories collected over his 20 years of research on Singapore maps and mapping.
