About this record
This scene, likely taken from on board ship, shows five dhows with two-lateen sail rigs at anchor at Karachi.
The dhow nearest to the camera has both of its sails stowed. A rope ladder hangs over the starboard beam end. The anchor chain can be seen afore the bow of the vessel.
In the distance, along the horizon, land can be seen.
Damaged film, printing error or a light leak has caused a very slight band, most discernible in the lower edge of the left of the image. Graphite pencil appears to have been applied to the print over this area.
