Here a serie of photos from the past, called Blast From The Past. In 1998 we travelled from Singapore to Bangkok and made a stopover in Penang. As I have a special interest in architectural design of buildings and houses I made a lot of photos from old Chinese shophouses. The last time I was in Penang was somewhere in 2005 and as I understand the government of Penang at least did recognise that this old Chinese shophouses are a part of the heritage of Penang and they are preserved for the future generations to see how people lived in the old days. Following are 12 more photos of Chinese shophouse in Penang, Malaysia.
