The man sat at the receiving dock of a warehouse in Sassoon Dock

The day had come to Sassoon Dock, south of the city of Mumbai. This is a fishing port that will not far from the city. A lot of fish are landed and a lot of people are working here. The man in the photo was also a man who worked at the dock.

He was sitting on a tire that he had placed in a large hole in the wall. The man's job must have been to catch fish that had just been landed because he had a knife in his hand. The man looked at me with the knife in his hand and smiled.

By the way, the name Sassoon Dock is a reference to David Sassoon, a Jewish merchant, who was from Baghdad. He had been involved in a wide range of charitable activities, including building hospitals, synagogues, and schools. The Sassoon family was one of the wealthiest families in the world in the 18th century. They were called the Rothschilds of the East.
