Great shot of the little "sampan".
When we were moored in the Kipperpore Dock we had two of them laid on as liberty boats, being brought up among small boats I used to take a turn to "skull" them out and in when we were going ashore and coming back aboard. Much to the amusement of the other natives.

japottinger,
Its a fantastic photo of one of the Bank Line fleet (named perhaps after Lord Inverforth,Andrew Weir) and brings back some happy memories of Calcutta,now known as some strange make up of its former and nicer name.
