Elementary Civic Education textbooks (初级公民), Book 2 and Book 3

These textbooks were published at a time when the curriculum was experiencing a shift from being Nanyang-orientated to one that tried to promote Malayan consciousness. Instead of the usual coconut trees and non-descript tropical scenery seen in the Nanyang Chinese textbooks, these textbooks have the neoclassical styled Capitol Theatre with vehicles in the foreground, depicted on the covers, probably suggesting a more Singapore-centric approach to its content.
