Malaysia - Penang - Ferry

My postcard collection of Penang Ferry which plies between George Town in Penang island and Butterworth on the mainland of Seberang Perai or formerly Province Wellesley.

If you have other Penang Ferry postcards, please send to me or swap with me. Thank you. I am trying to arrange in chronological order. If you know the approximate year of photo of each postcard based on the background buildings, please let me know.

I am looking for postcards showing Ferry  "Pulau Pinang", "Pulau Payar", "Pulau Rimau" and "Pulau Undan". Would like to collect postcards of the different ferries with different ferry color themes which are named after different islands (pulau pulau) in Malaysia. The most iconic ferry will be "Pulau Pinang".  This collection brings back fond memories of ferry crossing before the Penang Bridge was built. Enjoy viewing.
