View of sailors hoisting sails on a dhow (sailboat) in the Persian Gulf near Dubai. In the foreground a group of sailors stand on deck in two lines in front of the cockpit, below the dhow's main yard. Above them a sailor stands on the main yard pulling on some rigging. Behind him a large sail is filling with wind. 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.
