Penang view, 1880 - 1889

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/BAM 10/46

Scope and Contents

280 x 208 mm. A view looking along a foreshore at Penang, exact location unidentified but probably the section running parallel to Northern Road. A number of houses can be seen among the trees lining the beach, the nearest of which is identified in a pencilled caption beside the print as House of Dr Glass. This is probably not a contemporary annotation and may refer to G.S. Glass who is listed in the 1925 edition of the Directory and Chronicle of Japan, China, etc. as Assistant Health Officer, Municipality, Penang.


  • Creation: 1880 - 1889
