Wong Ah Fook:Immigrant, Builder and Entrepreneur

---

P.Lim Pui Huen

Through this biography of her great-grandfather, the author, a professional historian, charts Wong's transformation from a carpenter into a master developer when Singapore began to grow as the capital of the Straits Settlements and the spur for the opening up of Johor on the mainland. This biography is also rich in the schizophrenic social history of Chinese immigrants making their new homes overseas while maintaining family ties with China. Illustrations of the buildings constructed by Wong and the important family and public figures intersperse the text. 185 pages including a glossary, bibliography and index 

Weight: 0.9kg. Post free within Malaysia
