art deco style old factory

P1030091Along Serangoon Road next to Kallang River, National Aerated Water Co. Ltd. occupied this factory building since 1950s that produced old brand soft drinks such as Sinalco, Kickapoo and Royal Crown (RC) Cola - all my favourite soft drinks when I was a little girl. The building is now vacant and there is no sign of any new development. I love the proportion of this building, its side oval window, brick parapet wall and distinctive linear, geometric shaped decorative spire as the typical art deco vertical element.
