Distant view of dhows moored along the shore of Bahrain Island. In the near left two small dhows are moored alongside a boom, a large double masted dhow (sailboat) built in Kuwait, in wind-rippled water. At the centre a rowboat is tied to the stern of one of the dhows. In the distance many more booms and dhows are moored in the water in front of a far shore lined with trees and buildings.

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.
