Haw Par Villa - Life during Early Singapore

These exhibits showcased life during early Singapore. Life was hard and most made their living by farming. During the early 50s and 60s, vices and fights were common in early Singapore. Unlike the present Singapore where majority of Singaporeans owned their own homes, the early settlers live in rented homes and always find difficulty paying rents and most of the time get kicked out of their homes by landlords.
