St George's Anglican Church at Farquhar Street, Penang
This Anglican Church was build in 1816 using convict labour, when Colonel J.A. Bannerman was the Governor of Penang. The church was designed in the Georgian Palladian style - that's a combination of the Georgian style, named after the reigns of King George I and IV, 1714-1830; and the Palladian style, named after the Grecian architecture of a Roman called Palladius.
The first significant event to take place at the St George's Church was the marriage of Janet, daughter of Governor Bannerman, to William Edward Philips, in 1818. Services are still held at the St George's Church twice every Sunday, at 8.30am and 10.30am.

I had done a dozen of sketch theme as "Penang Building". This will be the last one, but who knows may be I will be sketching all of them again in future.
