Remark :

The front of this postcard shows a the pontoon bridge in Parit, which stretched over the Perak River. The back of the postcard is a short note written to Miss P. Schiller (Calle 4, No 2; Vedado, Havana, Cuba). The note reads as:

Ipoh 9/8/29

I was away last week and missed the music. This picture shows a pontoon bridge over the Perak River. It was washed away once in Dec 1926. A steel bridge to replace this on is under construction.

Yours truly,
