Description

View of one of the dhows (sailboats) on which Wilfred Thesiger sailed through the Abu Dhabi islands with Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his retainers. A dhow under full sail glides across a flat sea. Men sit crowded together on the deck of the dhow. At the back of the dhow a cloth covered awning is blown by the wind. A small canoe is towed behind the dhow. In the far distance a low sand bank stretches across the horizon. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's week and a half long sailing trip around the Abu Dhabi Islands with Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan Al Nahyan and their retainers in March 1948.

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.
