Description: Discharging Chittagong tea from the 'Clan Munroe' (1918) at the Clan Line Quay at Tilbury. A large proportion of the tea arriving in the port was transhipped by lighters to private riverside wharfs such as Butler's Wharf. Chittagong today is the sole auction centre for Bangladesh's tightly regulated tea trade.
