View of locals watering at Ad Darb well. In the foreground cattle drinking from a large round trough. In the background people draw water from a well using ropes and pulleys suspended from a large wooden frame built over the well. In the right background heavily loaded donkeys stand beside the well.

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.
