The historical interest in Penang is usually conveniently wrecked but, if preserved will, Sooner or later I'm absolutely sure, significantly turn into an cash flow creating asset. I have discovered a certain curiosity in the impact which the United kingdom and afterwards, Australia, has experienced upon the Island in the day of Sir Francis Gentle up until finally, and together with, the development of, what I believe have been the (I believe RAF, and afterwards the RAAF) married quarters while in the Tanjong Bungha space.
