Street art in Penang, Malaysia

Something a little different today, Georgetown in Penang is famous for being an old colonial town in Malaysia with a very high number of protected buildings. However over the past couple of years street art made of wire sculptures has cropped up to show a little bit more about the history of Georgetown. I did lots of laps of the backstreets today learning what the streets have been traditionally used for and how they came about their names. The examples below show Malay Street where there used to be numerous butchers, myself on rope walk, then at the bottom the street where designer Jimmy Choo once worked.
