Penang Isle: Old Central Fire Station

This Beach Street fire station was opened for operations in 1909, one of the only two fire stations on the island at that time.  Before this, the policemen were the only paid force on call to put out fires. It is also considered as a landmark in the area with its four-storey tower which was designed and built with both western and mughal influences.
