Punjab Ferryboat
The Illustrated London News - The road from Bilaspoor to the frontier ferry, which skirts the river, is paved with flint stones about a foot in diameter, and as often loose as not, dislodging the unsteady foot of a luckless wayfarer, and knocking it violently to one side or the other; the natives, however, step lightly over these stones without once stumbling. For a mile onward, the road adjoins the left bank of the Sutlej; it then loads to a rapid brook, and thence to the ferry-boat, which is nothing more or less than a sqaure box of wood strongly put together, and havind different partitions a foot high. The nativs swim across the river with the half of an ox's skin inflated with wind in an ingenious way. Having carried this on their shoulders to the shore, they spread themselves upon it on the water, laying fast hold with one hand, while they strike the water with a piece of timber in the other. 7/3/1846
