Description

Side view of two booms, large double masted dhows (sailboats) built in Kuwait, moored along the shore of Bahrain Island. Two booms, one in the left foreground and one further behind, are moored in flat water. Large cloth canopies have been erected over the deck of the dhow in the back right. The sea around the dhows is rippled by gentle waves, while above the sky is clear and cloudless.

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.
