|Description: Stevedores loading general cargo in a tween deck hold of the Strick Line's 'Tabaristan' (1969), shortly before her departure from the Royal Docks on her maiden voyage to Arabia and the Persian Gulf. The stevedores had to place cargo carefully in the hold to make sure that the ship did not become unbalanced and capsize.|
