Malaysia – Georgetown; The continuation search for Street Art (2)

Still at Chew Jetty, we were strolling along the passageways, passing the clustered wooden houses which were still occupied by the occupants of the Chew Clan communities.

The passageway made of wooden planks. The houses built on wooden stilts.

Wooden houses on stilts. If you look at the picture below on the far left, there used to be an Ernest Zacharevic’s painting; Children in a boat but due to the rain and sunshine… it was slowly disappearing. You can catch this painting in my earlier posting – Street Art around town; of a different kind

Boats tied to the jetty and it was low tide.

Walking out from the Chew Jetty…. we were heading to the Gat Lebuh Armenian (Armenian Street Ghaut) road.

Old shops doing metal works… and this one was doing anchors for boats or ships.
