Scope and Contents

165 x 215 mm. The caption continues: ' After inspection the cloves are loaded onto lighters which convey them out to the waiting ocean-liners out in the harbour. Cloves which are to be transhipped are covered with a gunny cover over the ordinary matting bag. When ships are in harbour and several thousand bales of cloves are to be shipped the wharf is a hive of bustling activity.'
