In the early 20th century, many businesses sprung up in Little India to cater to the growing Indian population in Singapore. These garland makers, goldsmiths, tailors, and shops selling saris, spices and other provisions from India flourished, and some have even become household names today. The rich experiences of these businesses are being celebrated and documented through the National Heritage Board’s (NHB) Street Corner Heritage Galleries scheme, which will be launched in the Little India precinct on 28 January 2022, with eight participating heritage businesses.
In these pictures, let's take a look at the Street Corner Heritage Galleries in Little India, Singapore.
