This 1992 photograph depicts Lorong 8 Geylang, from Geylang Road. It shows a view of a street lined with roadside parking lots, single-storey houses, and shophouses. 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.
