Group portrait of sailors hoisting sails on a dhow (sailboat) travelling through the Persian Gulf from Dubai to Bahrain Island. A group of sailors stand together on the deck, pulling on one of two ropes that runs between the men from the left foreground. Behind the men a large sail ripples behind the men. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's May 18-28, 1948 journey by dhow from Dubai to Bahrain Island.
Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
