Scene on board the SS 'Sumatra', 1875.
Engraving of a scene entitled 'Search on the Forecastle' on board the P&O steamer 'Sumatra'. It would appear that one of the ship's officers is conducting a search of a passengers' belongings. The 'Sumatra' had rescued the shipwrecked crew of the Turkish vessel 'Medina' on this voyage and it appears there might have been some tension between the two crews.
