The Old Singapore Kallang Airport.

In Singapore, reclamation work began on the 103 hectares of tidal swamp in Kallang Basin in 1932. The reclamation and consolidation of land were completed, forming a 915-metre diameter, dome-shaped landing ground. On 12 June 1937, the Kallang Aerodrome was officially opened by Sir Shenton Thomas, Governor of the Straits Settlements. In 1955, Paya Lebar Airport opened and the Kallang Aerodrome was closed so after.
