Thread: Seeking Van Kleef aquarium photos

    Exclamation Seeking Van Kleef aquarium photos

    Dear fellow clubsnappers,

    I am currently doing a project on Van Kleef aquarium.
    The father of Sentosa Underwater-world.

    Would like to seek everyone support to donate any photos of Van Kleef aquarium.
    Be it in digital format (I doubt since it was gone before the digital camera era) or any hard copy photo that can be scan.

    You can PM me your input or email me at ray_archer2003@yahoo.com

    Your support is greatly appreciated. And all credits will be given to the original photographer.

    Cheer!

    I have been to their website and have a look at the available archives.
    But most of the shots are with early VIP's and such.
    Do not blend in from what I am looking for.

    And I believe, the public will have more photographs of the early Van Kleef aquarium than them.

    The search continue.....

    most of these photos are actually scenes from postcards in the 40-60's. i have a collection of such postcards too.
