Municipal Office - Penang - 1903

Esplanade Road, George Town.

This civic building cost Straits $100,000 and relieved space in the neighbouring older Town Hall - see my photo at - which thereafter took on a more social function. As with all British settlements in the Malayan Peninsula, the Padang (or 'field') sits directly in front of this building for the twin purposes of military parades and sports.
