Time Out says

A picture is worth a thousand words, even tales from the yesteryears. Let Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall transport you back in time in its latest exhibition featuring photographs taken by early Chinese photography studios. Uncover the stories of Chinese portrait painters who learned photography and later immigrated to Singapore to set up photography studios after the First Opium War. The early Chinese Photography studio contributed to documenting Singapore's colonial history from the 1890s.
