Description

Group portrait of sailors hoisting sails on a dhow (sailboat) travelling through the Persian Gulf from Dubai to Bahrain Island. A group of sailors stand in a line on the deck, pulling heavily on a thick rope attached to a large pulley. One of the men stands beside the pulley, watching the ropes. In the right background the dhow's cockpit sits behind the mast. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's May 18-28, 1948 journey by dhow from Dubai to Bahrain Island.

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.
