Photographer's Note

This is one of the busy ferry ghat (terminus for ferry boats) in Barrackpore. The place is known as,
"Dhobi-ghat". Dhobi means washerman. During the British-rule in India, this ghat was used by washermen to wash military uniforms.

This snap was taken around sunset, the time when local workers, travellers return to their home at Srirampur, the other bank of the Hooghly.
