Description:
The bullock cart was the earliest means of transporting goods in the Far East and was used in Singapore up to the 20th century. According to Buckley's Anecdotal History, on the subject of pineapples, writing of the year 1842 -  "The pineapples of Singapore and the islets in the vicinity, are of a superior quality. They are large, sweet and well-flavoured, and they are cultivated in such abundance up the steep sides of these hilly islands, that they are sold in the market at three for one of a cent of a dollar, and are thus eagerly consumed by the lower classes".
