Three-quarter length standing portrait of Captain Haji Mansur on his dhow (sailboat) in the Persian Gulf near Bahrain Island. Haji Mansur, the nakhoda or captain of the dhow on which Wilfred Thesiger travelled from Dubai to Bahrain Island, stands next to a wooden post and a railing holding a pair of binoculars in his hands. He is wearing a T-shirt, a wraparound skirt and has a taqiyah cap on his head. Behind him the ocean is calm with gentle waves. 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.
