Singapore, (very old tree) c.1904 Image courtesy of The National Archives, Singapore. Singapore, very old tree is named after a mysterious 1904 postcard from the national archives. It features a tall tree about which very little is known. If you look carefully, you can see a man standing below the tree to the right to show the sheer size of this tree. This tree, among many other tall historical trees have disappeared over the years but there are many that are still around.
