This album takes the form of a series of photographs accompanied by extended captions, together with some introductory text used to set the scene. The bulk of the story, as witnessed by the title, takes place during the period 1953 to 1956 when Mr York was stationed in Singapore whilst serving with the Royal Air Force and took place against a background of terrorism which, although by then largely controlled, did restrict the author's perambulations about this verdant. As a postscript, there is a short finale when Mr York returned to his old hunting rounds in the early 1970s and witnessed the changes brought about by the formation of the Federation of Malaysia. The reader is treated to the sight of old buses, as well as two trolleybus systems and two small fleets of double-deckers. Even the local railways get a mention with a few photographs of their own.
