Throwback Thursday

This is another of my collection of Nippon.  I do not remember where I got this but I probably picked it up in a shop.  I liked it because it reminded me of Egypt.  I was there in 1976 and I particularly liked the boats.  Here is a snippet from Wiki....

A felucca (Arabic: فلوكة‎‎) is a traditional wooden sailing boat used in protected waters of the Red Sea and eastern Mediterranean including 
Malta, and particularly along the Nile in Egypt, Sudan, and also in Iraq. Its rig consists of one or two lateen sails.
They are usually able to board ten passengers and the crew consists of two or three people.
