This is a 1982 photograph depicting Geylang Road, from Lorong 38 Geylang (north side). It shows a view of a street lined with shophouses and roadside parking lots. 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.
