View of dhows (sailboats) moored in the Persian Gulf near Bahrain Island. In the central foreground a small dhow is moored alongside a large dhow (left) in calm water rippled by gentle waves. Two men stand in the small dhow, in which large logs are piled up on the deck. A few men stand on the large dhow behind, and in the far let distance more dhows are moored in the water. 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.
