This photograph shows a whale and a whaleboat alonside a whaling vessel. The photograph was probably taken from the deck of the ship as it is from above and the ship's hull in in the left foreground. The whale is hard against the ship while men from the whalebost are thrusting flensing tools or poles into it.
