[Kuwait]. Arab sail-makers at work, Koweit.

Bombay, The Times Press, [ca. 1910].

Half-tone photographic postcard.


A beautiful image of sail-makers labouring over a large sheet of sailcloth, stretched out before a picturesque backdrop of beach, dhows and ocean. The Times Press, alongside the main business of printing newspapers, issued a number of postcards of Western India and Mesopotamia in the first decades of the 20th century. The present postcard is one of the few illustrated with photographs of Kuwait.

Very light rounding to corners, otherwise very good.
