Some Great Photos Of Singapore's Recent History

With Singapore's National Day almost upon us once again people are being asked by the Straits Times to identify themselves in some of the old archived photos they hold, or have been featured in past news stories.

The WE: Defining Stories exhibition will feature a series of iconic and historical photographs of everyday life as the image below shows.

August 9th may come and go each year in other parts of the world but it marks a special day for Singaporeans and they celebrate it in style.

The fireworks and fly-pasts are something to behold, especially if you can get a good vantage point from a top level HDB flat or condo.
