Portrait of an Indian girl

The majority of Indian immigrants to Singapore from the mid-19th century till the early 20th century were males. It was only after 1930 that more Indian women and children arrived. The educated Indian woman stayed home usually, while those in the workforce were mainly teachers, attendants and nurses.
