This 1992 photograph depicts the canal at Lorong 36 Geylang (northeastwards). The backs of houses are visible to the left of the photograph, while on the right, a grove of trees can be seen. 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.
