1998/1999 Singapore Street Directory

Ministry of Law, Singapore Street Directory, 19th Edition, Singapore: SNP Corporation Ltd, 1998, pp591.

As years gone by, this kind of guidebook became larger and larger (due to more roads and highways being built) and its pages have color maps and advertisements.

The size of this issue is almost that of a coffee table book.
