It went through the world wars, changes in governments and racial riots - and lived to tell the tales. Now, 170 years on, The Straits Times, in collaboration with the ArtScience Museum, has launched an exhibition chronicling the paper's and Singapore's history since 1845. Called Singapore STories: Then, Now, Tomorrow, the free exhibition was officially launched by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in July and will run until Oct 4 at the ArtScience Museum. The show features stories, photos and videos from the paper's extensive archives. An extremely rare first issue of the broadsheet, on loan from the National Library Board, is also on display at the exhibition.
