View of two sailors setting the sails on a dhow (sailboat) in the Persian Gulf near Dubai. A young African sailor wearing an undershirt and a wraparound skirt stands next to a mast, holding on to rigging ropes with one arm. On the far left another sailor stands beside a second mast. He is holding on to a large sail that is spread out across the background. 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.
