210 x 155 mm. A general view of the lighthouse neighbouring buildings on the small island of Pulau Rimau which lies off the extreme south east tip of Penang Island. From the piles of building material and newly cleared bush still in evidence, the photograph would appear to have been taken around 1883. The lighthouse was built between 1881-1883 and the light erected the following year (Straits Settlements Blue Books, 1881-1884).
