View of a family of Awazim or Ajman Bedouin at a well in the region between Kuwait City and Al Qatif on the Persian Coast. In the foreground a boy hauls water out of a well using ropes. Another boy stands behind him and a woman sits on the ground. In the background donkeys walk behind the well, and in the far distance is a large herd of camels.

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.
