Close view of dhows moored along the shore of Bahrain Island. Two small dhows sit alongside a moored boom, a type of large double masted dhow (sailboat) built in Kuwait, in calm, gently rippled water. A number of men stand in the small dhow on the right. Behind them more men stand on the deck of the boom near the main mast. On the left a large canopy made from palm fronds covers the stern of the boom.

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.
