The local people came to the wharf to take a small boat to cross the Buriganga river because there were no bridges around here. So the wharf called Sadarghat was jammed with wooden small boats which transported passengers to the opposite side of the river.

All the boats were hand-rowing. So one oarsman got on every boat. A man wearing lungi was one of the oarsmen. He stood on the edge of his empty boat.
