What do a poultry farmer, letter writer and goldsmith have in common?

They are all tradesmen who were once a common sight during the old days of Singapore.

The National Heritage Board is inviting the public to contribute photographs and stories to an exhibition featuring these trades.

Entitled The Trade Winds: Stories of Pioneer Tradesmen, it will tell the stories of six individuals who worked in these once common trades.
