On Paper: Singapore Before 1867
28 Sep 2019 – 22 Mar 2020
10am – 9pm

On Paper: Singapore Before 1867 features over 150 paper-based artefacts that tell the story of Singapore’s early history – from a 17th-century Portuguese navigational chart that point to the existence of a Shahbandar (harbour master) on Singapore island to the key document that established the Straits Settlements as a Crown Colony of Britain on 1 April 1867.

Through carefully preserved records from not only the collections of the National Library and the National Archives of Singapore, On Paper presents a rare treat to all who are interested in our nation’s past.For more information on our programmes, workshops and guided tours, visit www.nlb.gov.sg/exhibitions/
