Merican Road, George Town, Penang (15 December 2008)

Merican Road, otherwise known as Jalan Merican, is a Y-shaped road in George Town. It has two ends opening to Pahang Road and one to Dunlop Road. Merican Road is in one of the early residential neighbourhoods developed in the early part of the 20th century. Many of the houses here are in the early Art Deco style. If I'm mistaken, I believe this road was named after the late 19th century Malay trader, M.Z. Merican.
