Thanks to Thomas Crosbie for this collection of personal photographs from his time in Singapore.  Thomas said "Laura of course was my wife who has sadly died from cancer after 58 years of happy marriage. My other love was the Durkopf Diana Motor Scooter. Best vehicle I ever had and perfect for the climate in Singers of course. Alice was our Amah for the two commissions we did out there. One period from 1961 to 1963 and the other from 1967 to 1970. My daughter was born there on Chinese New Year 1969 (Which animal was that?) with the fireworks going off for her arrival."
