Penang, 1935

Arixx, Abdullah poster: Penang

This is a rare travel poster promoting the Penang, the Malaysian island and former British colony often called the "Pearl of the Orient." The poster depicts the lush Central Hill Range, which is capped by Penang Hill, which at 830 meters is the highest spot on the island.

The exotic scene, complete with swinging monkeys, includes a view of the funicular that climbs to the summit through the steepest tunnel in the world.
