Between the lines : early print advertising in Singapore, 1830s-1960s

"This volume presents nearly 400 advertisements – from the 1830s to 1960s– from the collection of the National Library, Singapore. They are selected from a variety of print materials, including newspapers, books, periodicals and ephemera. Written by our own librarians and curators, the eight chapters in this book provide an overview of print advertisements for a range of goods or services: automobiles, entertainment, fashion, food, hospitality, household goods, medical and travel. Beyond offering a glimpse into the material world of a particular period, advertisements may also reveal certain cultural conditions of the day, such as racial prejudices and gender stereotypes"--Foreword.
