Singapore Street Names: A Study of Toponymics
Dr Victor R Savage Adjunct Senior Fellow
Dr Victor R Savage
This is the 4th edition of our book on Singapore’s street and place names. It deals with the historical, cultural, social, economic and political scaffoldings of Singapore’s cultural landscape based on place and street names. This book has been cited by many Singapore scholars and amateur historians who are interested in finding out the origins of place and street names over time. The book has been substantially revised and brought up to date with new information on various place and street names. As many Singaporeans are interested in the history of cultural landscapes, we have been able to benefit from their descriptions of specific places. The book is being published by Marshall Cavendish and would be out some time in November 2021.
