In 1819, when Sir Stamford Raffles founded Singapore, he was accompanied by two French naturalists. Ever since, French missionaries, merchants, planters and other pioneers have contributed to its economic, educational and cultural development. Discover the colourful stories of personalities, such as J. Casteleyns (who built the first hostelry, the Hotel de l¿Europe, in 1857), Father Jean-Marie Beurel (who constructed the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd) and Alfred Clouët (who started the well-known Ayam Brand canned sardines business). Superbly illustrated with photographs, paintings, sketches, old documents and maps, The French in Singapore is an invaluable resource for anyone seeking to discover the little-known history of the French in the Singapore we know today.
