Dickens Street (30 November 2008)

Dickens Street, or Lebuh Dickens, is a short one-way street linking Penang Road with Transfer Road. Traffic on the street moves in one direction from Penang Road towards Transfer Road. Dickens Street was named after John Dickens, a British magistrate who arrived in George Town in 1801, and discovered upon arrival that his services were no longer required, as the British settlement had instead set up a Recorder's Court. John Dickens is not related to the novelist Charles Dickens (1812-1870) (despite what was stated on the history plaque), although there was a rumour that he was the latter's uncle.
