Another week spent with the students sketching.
Geylang Bahru Industrial Estate comprises 18 blocks of single-storey terrace workshops for clean and light general industrial trades and canteen. The leases for these units are less than ten years. This factory types play a very important part in the development of Singapore as they are the first generation in our industrial building. Walking around the area is like walking down the memory lane for my generation. I saw a rattan factory, advertising, manufacturing, hardwares and even funeral services. This corner unit of block 91 is sand supplier with many packed jumbo sand bags stacked in front of the shop.
