The Penang Chinese Recreation Club (or also known as CRC) is an old heritage clubhouse established by a group of Chinese sports enthusiasts in the 1900s. The Victorian style clubhouse was converted from an old heritage mansion and to this date, the club is still active with a restaurant located within the premise that caters generally to Chinese wedding banquets. CRC is located at Jalan Padang Victoria (Victoria Green) in George Town.
The Queen Victoria Memorial is a monument erected to mark the anniversary of the said British empire’s queen who passed away in January 1901. Also serving as a way to honor the queen, the monument was built and sponsored by the local Chinese business community back then.
The monument is located in an area belonging to the Penang Chinese Recreation Club at Macalister Road, but can be easily spotted from the intersection of Pangkor Road (Jalan Pangkor) and Burmah Road.
