Good to see the restoration of some important buildings along Beach Street have finally been completed. Most of the buildings shown in pic belong to OCBC Bank and so we must congratulate OCBC on keeping our heritage alive.

Old name is retained ..... wonder if Whiteway is an old established departmental store?


The W for Whiteway is designed as a butterfly and it's used as a logo. Very creative. Love this sweet logo and wonder if the logo is an old logo too?

Great photo's Kayes, well remember the original Whiteway's store back in the 60's is this arcade on the same site, I thought it was down one of the side streets where De Silva the jewellers are.

Time can't stand still and nothing can remain forever. Trends change all the time. Premises esp. departmental stores need upgrading to capture customers' needs!

Yea, I think the original Whiteaway department store is at Bishop st, with a "yu ta" logo. It is mentioned in another thread.

Thanks for sharing, Kayes. It makes me having the urge to look for the 50s photos of our lovely Penang...

Old Town White Coffee at the Whiteways Arcade is tastefully decorated. Old Town White Coffee in Penang. In KL, we are going gaga over Georgetown Kopitiam!


I presume Butik Sri Hari sells batik. That piece of batik on display on the window is a fusion - Dragon on Batik.


Thanks Kayes for sharing those lovely pics.

Wah! So many new Kopitiams in Penang. Do Penangites need so much caffein to keep them awake? Smile Too much nightlife! Smile Smile


Those stones in front of Old Town White Coffee are candidly shot. The way they are arranged make me think of Karate Kid and this Kopitiam should be named Teatiam. Ka ka ka


Oh yes, I always love Old Town White Coffee's Zi Mut Tea (Smooth Stocking Tea). Zi Mut is pantyhose in Cantonese and my naughty friends name Zi Mut as Stocking Pelacur. Jahatnya .....
