Georgetown

Penang, Malaysia

The moorish-style clocktower at the junction of Lebuh Light and Lebuh Pantai is sixty feet tall, one foot for each year of Victoria's reign. A corner of the wall surrounding Fort Cornwallis appears behind the tower, which was built to commemorate Queen Victoria's 1897 Jubilee.
