Take a journey through time, and discover the cultural icons that defined Singapore before it became the bustling metropolis of today. Through the Eyes of a Child: Art by Quek Hong Shin captures the vanishing collective memories from a time when coconut trees towered over attap houses, and children played in the busy back-alleys of old Chinatown.
