This 1992 photograph shows Lorong 40 Geylang (from near the bridge over the canal towards Geylang). It shows a view of a street with shophouses along the street. 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.
