Title:
Landon Chronicles (1930): Siam: The Tin Dredge (hour 53, clip 14)
Date:
1930
Description:
The Tin Dredge was a huge boat built on dry ground before being moved to the sea. Kenneth and Margaret describe the fascinating process of moving the boat to sea. It was used to carry the tin, and several people with different expertise were working on the dredge, with the help of many coolies. Mr. Sheehan was one of the winchmen. A pickel of tin was a little bag of tin about the size of a twelve-pound flour sack, but it was almost worth its weight in gold. (Length 4:18)
