Argus Lane

At the back of Farquhar Street‘s Church of Assumption lies Argus Lane (or Lorong Argus), a small street that used to house a small community of Eurasian in George Town back then. One of the old townhouses found here was reported to be named Argus House, the place where Penang’s first independent newspaper, ‘Pinang Argus’ was printed (back in the year 1867).
