Colony of Singapore Annual Report 1955
I picked up this copy at the AOTO shop at Tanglin Shopping centre. This series of books summarizes the year's events, policy changes ...etc... and statistics on all sorts of things like population, trade, education, birth rate...etc....
From 1959 onwards, after Singapore gained self-rule, this series became known as the 'State of Singapore Annual Report'. And sometime since independence, it is simply known as the Singapore year book. Since 2008, it seems that they have stopped printing hardcopies, and only online versions are available.
