Through the wheels of time

A trolleybus turning from Dr Lim Chwee Leong Road to Carnarvon Street. Note the trishaw on the right, which were introduced to Penang in 1941.

THE nostalgia hits many locals on busy Penang Road.

From the Chulia Street-Penang Road junction towards Komtar, commuters will come across parallel steel tramlines, built sometime between 1880 and 1906.
