SHB Docker

The harbour strike still going on as of Christmas Eve of 1946. Not quite sure where Kwan stood on this. Most of his other cartoons were critical of the British, but the satirical elements at work here are targeted at the strikers - drunken and foolish, and detrimental to the economic recovery of Singapore after the war? See this other cartoon.

24 Dec 1946
