However, further provisions is stated that the present copyright laws of Singapore are only applicable to photographs taken after 10 April 1987. Photographs taken before this date still follows the Crown Copyright Law of 1911, which states that the copyright in a photograph shall subsist for 50 years from the time that it is taken. (Refer to Copyright Guidelines For Newsletter Editors in Singapore, 7 May 1999, Christopher Pang).

Hence photographs taken in the 1900 in Singapore comes under the jurisdiction of British copyright laws and are now in the public domain.
