Croydon is the largest borough in London in terms of population, it is located in the south. The borough consists of a historic town located in the centre, with red-brick buildings such as the old Croydon town hall and Addington Palace - a mansion constructed in the 18th century that formerly housed six archbishops, serving as their second residence. The rows of historic high street shops have become interspersed with high-rise buildings and office blocks given commercialisation of the area. Hong Sek Chern demonstrates this by placing the old buildings with their beautiful facades at the fore of the picture and vestiges of office buildings encroaching upon them from the edges, signifying the splendour of the older architecture and how it threatens to be overtaken by modernity.
