ON THE BENCH : IN THE 1990s

THE FISH CLEANING BENCH in besser blocks and concrete.

This bench is not actually designed for sitting on despite the boy reclining on top of it. Its another tabletop bench. Note the downward angle towards the river and the tap at the top. That enables fish gizzards and blood to run directly back into the water. One of the risks is that it attracts sharks as well but it is a practical bench. Solid. Able to withstand tides and flooded waters.  It adjoins the boat ramp and barbecue area.

This Fish Cleaning Bench is in Urunga on the Kalang River. Despite its being unsuitable for neighbourly seating, to does encourage casual cross generational conversation and still retains the “people facing in one direction” instead  of facing one another effect and so, like other benches,  it  leads to a more relaxed interchange.
