Travel back in time to the Singapore River!

Aloysius and his Grandpa spend a day on the Singapore River in olden day Singapore. As Aloysius is introduced to the ships, the bumboats, the boatmen, the coolies and the warehouses, he realises how awesome life on the river was — how busy, noisy, dirty, and smelly too! — and the very vital role it played in Singapore's early days as a port settlement.

Travel into Singapore's past with the Time Travel, Singapore! series. The series showcases the people, places, practices, foods, arts, events and so much more that were an integral part of people's lives then.
