Chia Thye Poh and Lim Chin Siong

For far too long, Singapore's history has been written; told; re-told and reinforced by the victors and their minions. There's much more to our history then that.

This is a 1962 photo of Chia Thye Poh (L) and Lim Chin Siong (R) from The National Archives of Singapore's Access to Archives Online Singapore (a20). To get to the photos, click on Database followed by PICAS or Picture Archives Singapore Database. Here's the direct link to PICAS. And just do a search of whatever you're looking for.

I entered each of their names in the search box. Click here for photos of Chia Thye Poh and here for Lim Chin Siong.
