Thirty six gentlemen posing infront of the only fort built by the Brooke regime in Bintulu. Just above the fort entrance door are the words "FORT KEPPEL A.D. 1868". Apparently this is the oldest dated phograph I have of Bintulu.
Did you know the Bintulu Melanaus called it a day for the Pirates of the South China Seas? A palm named Licuala bintulensis? That the first democratic style state assembly in Borneo was convened here in 1867?
