Reference Number: B-052a-011

The crew of Dumont d'Urville's ship Astrolabe transferring fresh water into barrels in one of the ship's boats. They are in a sheltered bay. Two men are standing in a fresh-water pool to the left, filling their buckets. These are being passed to two other men who have set up a row of barrels leading to the boat, with support structures at the water's edge and at the boat and a long funnel through which the water is passing. Two officers on the right are talking to three New Guineans, who are bringing fish and an eel or snake. The Astrolabe can be seen in the background, moored out in the stream. Tall trees grow at the water's edge on the left.
