View of people collecting water from a well in Ad Darb. In the foreground a group of young boys stands on the left. In the centre an older boy wearing a palm head-dress and a long sword over his wraparound skirt stands next to a young man sitting on a donkey loaded with coils of rope. Behind them a crowd waits beside the well while a few men use ropes and pulleys to get water from 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.
