George Town's Historic Commerical and Civic Precincts
Penang came to prominence as a commercial hub in the region from the late 18th century onwards. This book highlights the buildings that housed, and still do house, 75 of the more prominent commercial centres within the historic city centre. In addition to illustrations of the buildings, both then and now, each subject is described with a wealth of background information about the families and businesses involved with each building. The author is arguably the leading historian of Penang under the British East India Company. 204 pages with an index.
