When a handful of girls gathered amongst 1,000 Boy Scouts at the Crystal Palace Rally, Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the Boy Scout Movement saw the need to start a Movement for girls. Agnes Baden-Powell, his sister, and later, Olave Baden-Powell, his wife, led the Girl Guide Movement.

Our first Unit was registered at St. Mary's Home (the former residence of Tan Yok Nee). Later, Units were registered at Raffles Girls' School, Singapore Chinese Girls' School and Church of England Zenana Missionary Society School (now St. Margaret's Secondary School). Our first Brownie Pack was started on Pulau Ubin. Mrs J. Cavendish, Chief Commissioner for Malaya and Singapore (1917-1934) donated the Cavendish Shield to stimulate interest in Guiding. Guides from St. Margaret's Secondary School and St. Hilda's Girl's School won the Cavendish Shield for Singapore.
Miss Jessie Kilgour Miss Jessie Kilgour, first District Commissioner of Singapore (1928-34) encouraged Malay girls to join the Movement. She also started Brownie programmes at St. Andrew's Orthopaedic Hospital.

ADVERTISING INFORMATION Singapore - History Singapore city, capital of the Republic of Singapore. It occupies the southern part of Singapore Island. Its strategic position on the strait between the Indian Ocean and South China Sea, complemented by its deepwater harbour, has made it the largest port in Southeast Asia and one of the world's greatest commercial centres. The city, a free port, so dominates Singapore Island that the Republic of Singapore is often referred to as a city-state. Singapore (known variously as the "Lion City," or "Garden City," the latter for its many parks and tree-lined streets) has been called "instant Asia" because it offers the tourist an expeditious glimpse into the cultures brought to it by immigrants from all parts of Asia. While predominantly Chinese, it has substantial minorities of Malays and Indians. According to Malay tradition the island was visited by a prince who came from the Sumatran empire of Srivijaya, who founded and named the city of Singapura. Portuguese records also have it that the city was founded by a Srivijayan prince from Palembang. Sacked by the Majapahit Javanese during the 14th century, it was supplanted by Malacca (Melaka) but remained a port of call. Its modern history began with the arrival of Sir Stamford Raffles of the British East India Company, who, in searching for a trading site, landed there on Jan. 29, 1819. The port's growth was steady, and opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 and the advent of steamships increased its importance as a bunkering station. Its growth was assured by the demand for the tin and rubber of the Malay Peninsula, for which the port was a natural shipping outlet.

A third-century account described Singapore as Pu-luo-chung or island at the end of a peninsula. Although its Sanskrit name Singapura (Lion City) was commonly used by the end of the 14th century.
In the early 15th century, Singapore was a Thai vassal state of the Javanese, but the Malacca (Melaka) Sultanate which Iskandar had founded quickly extended its authority over the island. After the Portuguese seizure of Malacca in 1511, the Malay admiral fled to Singapura and established a new capital at Johor Lama, keeping a port officer in Singapura.
The Portuguese destroyed Johor Lama in 1587 and the subsequent obscurity of Singapura probably dates from 1613 when the Portuguese reported burning down a Malay outpost at the mouth of the river.

Although Singapore's history dates from the 11th century, the island was little known to the West until the 19th century, when in 1819, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles arrived as an agent of the British East India Company. In 1824, the British purchased Singapore Island, and by 1825, the city of Singapore had become a major port, with trade exceeding that of Malaya's Malacca and Penang combined. In 1826, Singapore, Penang, and Malacca were combined as the Straits Settlements to form an outlying residency of the British East India Company; in 1867, the Straits Settlements were made a British Crown Colony, an arrangement that continued until 1946. The opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 and the advent of steamships launched an era of prosperity for Singapore as transit trade expanded throughout Southeast Asia. In the 20th century, the automobile industry's demand for rubber from Southeast Asia and the packaging industry's need for tin helped make Singapore one of the world's major ports. In 1921, the British constructed a naval base, which was soon supplemented by an air base. But the Japanese captured the island in February 1942, and it remained under their control until September 1945, when it was recaptured by the British.

History of Singapore
In 1946 the Straits Settlements was dissolved; Penang and Malacca became part of the Malayan Union and Singapore became a separate British Crown Colony. In 1959 Singapore became self-governing and in 1963 it joined the newly independent Federation of Malaya Sabah and Sarawak (the latter two former British Borneo territories) to form Malaysia. Indonesia adopted a policy of "confrontation" against the new federation charging that it was a "British colonial creation " and severed trade with Malaysia. The move particularly affected Singapore since Indonesia had been the island's second-largest trading partner. The political dispute was resolved in 1966 and Indonesia resumed trade with Singapore. After a period of friction between Singapore and the central government in Kuala Lumpur Singapore separated from Malaysia on August 9 1965 and became an independent republic.

Job The history of Singapore began as early as the 3rd Century when a Chinese account described the island at the tip of the Malay peninsula. Singapore rose in importance during the 14th century under the rule of Srivijayan prince Parameswara and became an important port until it was destroyed by Portuguese raiders in 1613. The modern history of Singapore began in 1819 when Englishman Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles established a British port on the island. Under British colonial rule, it grew in importance as a centre for both the India-China trade and the entrepôt trade in Southeast Asia, rapidly becoming a major port city.
During World War II, Singapore was conquered and occupied by the Japanese Empire from 1942 to 1945. When the war ended, Singapore reverted to British control, with increasing levels of self-government being granted, culminating in Singapore's merger with the Federation of Malaya to form Malaysia in 1963. However, social unrest and disputes between Singapore's ruling People's Action Party and Malaysia's Alliance Party resulted in Singapore's expulsion from Malaysia. Singapore became an independent republic on 9 August 1965.
Facing severe unemployment and a housing crisis, Singapore embarked on a modernisation programme that focused on establishing a manufacturing industry, developing large public housing estates and investing heavily on public education. Since independence, Singapore's economy has grown by an average of nine percent each year. By the 1990s, the country has become one of the world's most prosperous nations, with a highly-developed free market economy, strong international trading links, and the highest per capita gross domestic product in Asia outside of Japan.[1]

This fine compilation rises above the usual coffee-table designation with 1200 well-chosen images, mostly historical photos from both commercial photographers and amateurs but also sketches, paintings, and postcards from numerous sources, including one-of-a-kind family albums. For example, there is the earliest known extant pencil sketch (1823) and photograph (1843) of Singapore. Arranged chronologically, the four chapters consist of concise commentary and identification notes; the views include topographical studies, posed formal portraits, and spontaneous street scenes. All ethnic groups are presented in a balanced fashion, as are all kinds of activity political, economic, religious, cultural, and social.
