View of sailors hoisting sails on the deck of a dhow (sailboat) travelling through the Persian Gulf from Dubai to Bahrain Island. A group of sailors stand on deck along the right side of the boat. Each of the men pulls on one of three ropes attached at a point behind the cockpit. Behind them the sea is empty and calm. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's May 18-28, 1948 journey by dhow from Dubai to Bahrain Island.
