We are currently building a Knowledge Bank of historical maps, photographs, and postcards of George Town, accessible as an online resource, known as 'Visions of Penang'. Currently this site comprises of hundreds of Revenue Survey maps of both Penang Island and Mainland between 1885 -1896 (Kelly Maps), as well as early postcards and photographs from the Wade and Penang Library Collections. The site is continually being updated with new images.
