Fish Lane

Fish Lane (or Lorong Ikan) is a small street in George Town that got its name due to the locals who were hanging salted fish to dry outside on the street back in the old days. The reasons being the area was close to a nearby marketplace and not many could afford a refrigerator at that time. There is also a wall art sculpture depicting the origin of the area.
