Should you think that this photo doesn't show enough detail, this image is a 0.34 megapixel image
reduced from a 36 megapixel image. The original, as with most other images on my website, is a bit more detailed ;-)

Restoration, Penang, 2007
This old building on Beach Road is being restored.

. . . and here it is in 2009 after restoration.
