Colonial Legacy, Penang, Malaysia

Penang was one of the trading centers that made up the Straits Settlements, a British crown colony from 1826 to 1946. The Penang City Hall pictured here was built by the British in 1903 to serve as municipal offices for Penang. Today the building is home to the Penang Island City Council. The British, of course, are long gone.
