A number of Arab men standing on a small sail boat moored at the river bank. They are probably traders who sell goods to the Nuer and Dinka along the Sobat River. The film number suggests a location among the Gaajok at the mouth of the Nyanding River. Evans-Pritchard spent some 4 weeks in 1935 among the Eastern Jikany tribes living at the mouth of the Nyanding River.
