The Padang has been a central feature of the City of Singapore since the very earliest days. Whilst the buildings and shoreline around it have gradually evolved, this great field has remained a constant feature - a place for recreation and ceremony.

This map of the Padang, taken from a 1960s street directory, should help with placing most of the images that follow.
