About Fishmongers and Street Vendors in the 1950s
Hawkers, including fishmongers, were frequently found along the busy streets of Singapore during the early days. It was a common occupation amongst new immigrants as it was a low-cost way of earning a living – especially for the unskilled and unemployed. Though it came with certain issues like traffic obstruction and hygiene, street hawkers provided convenience and accessibility to families and the working class.
