The Star Penang section happened to feature this building. More info here:
This used to be the Dato Keramat Tin Smelting company. However, one of the largest project called The Penang Times Square is going on and this building has been given a facelift.
It is painted white and looks so majestic.
If I remember correctly, it is the Brooke or is it Birch House? Sorry, I can’t verify. So, someone please tell me. If I remember correctly, James Brooke is the guy who brought rubber trees?
