The wharf in Sadarghat was crowded with wooden small boats. Not only passengers but also burdens were boarding or exiting. The wharf was bustling. The oarsmen were seen on every wooden boat.

The human-powered boats in this photo were still used to cross the wide Buriganga River in Dhaka. The oarsmen held a long wooden pole and they used it to move their boat. So all of them stuck their oar into the river in the density.
