Bishop Street (or in local Malay name, Lebuh Bishop), is a street situated in the heritage area of George Town and is connected with Beach Street and King Street. The street was named after the Roman Catholic Bishop Garnault (a French missionary) who moved to Penang island during the old colonial era, upon an invitation by Francis Light. The bishop’s presbytery is located at the street.
During the earlier days, Bishop Garnault (or formerly Father Garnault) also founded and established Penang’s oldest church, and the street where the church was located, was named Church Street.

This art mural depicts a local Chinese bard named Tan Tong Tong who was famous as a Yue Qin (a traditional Chinese lute) musician during the 1950s to 1960s. He had a local radio program back then which was broadcasting his recordings before it got cancelled.
This rather secluded mural can be found along a small alley between Bishop Street and Light Street which also connects King Street and Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling (Pitt Street).
It is right at the back of the Delta (office furniture shop) building. For its precise location, please click HERE.
