Dear Friend,

More than a century ago, these postcards from the Straits Settlements floated across oceans, carrying beautiful sights of Singapore, Penang and Malacca, and eagerly anticipated messages from their senders. Our publication - Reminiscences of the Straits Settlements through Postcards, featured more than 150 postcard images vividly portraying life at the turn of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Now you can send your own greetings with these historical postcards from the National Archives of Singapore to your friends with a few taps of the keyboard. No stamps required!
