Maxwell Road (or Jalan Maxwell) is a small road located at the heart of George Town and was named after Sir William Edward Maxwell, a colonial secretary and the Acting Governor of the Straits Settlements in Singapore between 1893 and 1894. The road used to be thriving with businesses and its row of shophouses were occupied by traders due to a nearby market which existed back then. However, after the market was moved out of the area, the road now only consists of empty, derelict and abandoned pre-war style shophouses.
