I have found 3 books that is relevant in our project that can use as our sources.
- Singapore Rubber Tree – an Economic Heritage by Peter W.C. Tan
- The Rubber Industry, A Study in Competition & Monopoly by P. T. Bauer
- Rubber In Malay 1876 – 1922, The Genesis of The Industry by John Drabble
I’ve peep at some pages of the books and they contained very parallel information that I have read online and scholarly articles.
With these more accurate books, we will constantly update our wall text and item description.
Since our project does not contain Artworks, we would need to pick 4 objects that we are able to write an item description.
Great! When were these written? Where did you find them? Do you have a nice mix of different types of sources? Did you come across any publication on a past exhibition about the rubber tree and its objects?
Two of them was found in HSS Library in NTU, and the other two, I found it at the Chinese Heritage Centre’s Library. yeah they have a library inside. So far we have scholarly articles with these books. We didn’t actually found any pass exhibition but we will keep looking, maybe even related ones.
