Description

Side view of the bow of a j?lb?t [jalboot], a type of dhow (sailboat) with a square-shaped stern and an upright bow, moored along the shore of Bahrain Island. The j?lb?t sits in calm water rippled by gentle waves below a cloudless sky. A talk mast projects out of the middle of the boat. In the left background more dhows sit in the water, and further beyond buildings line the far shore.

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.
