Perak Heritage Society
theStar today
highlights the dangerous tilt of
the dredge TT5 in Tanjong Tualang,
“Perak’s heritage dredge”.
Now, national interest is piqued.
As the pontoon which floats the dredge is leaking,
its private management company is 
experiencing maintenance and financial problems.
As a result, TT5 may simply fall over.
It threatens to collapse into a twisted mess of steel. 
 That’s complete destruction of this industrial heritage! 
 Come learn about the history of TT5 and
the unpublished fact on the dredge’s deterioration and
the hands which failed.
Mr Stephen Ng, manager ofTT5,
will be present at our briefing to answer your questions.
can anyone else come along?
Do invite members of PHS you are in touch with.
who else?
Anyone who has an interest in saving the dredge

for its significance to Perak heritage.
Non-members and heritage-friendly people are welcome.
how to spread the news?
 Circulate this NOTICE with discretion.
 The PHS Office has a limited seating capacity of 30.
For RSVP: see below. 

Saturday, Nov 7, 2009: 2.30 pm

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1906, BM Iversen arrived in Malaya in 1928 and worked for two architectural firms before setting up his own practice in Ipoh in 1936. After World War II, Iversen, van Sitteren & Partners had offices in Ipoh, Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.   Notable buildings he designed in Ipoh include the Cathay Cinema and the Geosains Complex. His signature International Style won him many private and public commissions. According to Ken Yeang’s book Architecture of Malaysia, “It became an indication of status among Ipoh’s wealthy businessmen to own an Iversen-designed house.”
