KINTA RIVERFRONT, IPOH #3 - GRAVEL PUMP MINING METHOD (PALONG).

From my two previous postings on Kinta Riverfront, you can click on #1 and #2 to read if you have not done so. My walk had taken me further up where there is another bridge. 
This is a beautiful brown  bridge and over here some of the gravel pump tin mining equipments are kept here for display.

The following are parts of the tin mining equipment.
Took these photos from above.





Due to the joint effort and contribution of the above participants,
we get to see these display and have some idea of the tin mining methods. 




Mobile assam laksa stall...found this just before the mining equipment. 
Lovely lake view of D.R. Seenivasagam Park (just beside).
A project of Department of Irrigation and Drainage, state of Perak.
Found this on the other end, just beside D.R. Seenivasagam Park.

Just as water is turned into irrigation ditches,

so the LORD directs the king's thoughts.

He turns them wherever He wants to.

We can justify our every deed, but God looks at our motives.

God is more pleased when we are just and fair

than when we give Him gifts.

(Proverbs 21:1-3, TLB)

  9. I like that brown bridge. Reminded of the one we had here but the big wooden bridge collapsed many years ago and now, it is gone as a memory.

    Nice photos. Educational too. Those equipments are older than us!! Our historical heritage.
