This 1992 photograph depicts Lorong 28 Geylang, looking from the east side towards Geylang Road. It shows the view of a one-way street with shophouses on both sides of the road, and roadside parking lots. There are vehicles parked in some of the parking lots. The foreground of the photograph shows a two storey building with shophouses, fringed by trees. A three storey building and and a block of flats can be seen in the background of the photograph. Geylang is believed to be a corruption of the term "kilang", Malay for factory, from the coconut and lemongrass processing factories of the area. Title devised by Library staff.
