View of locals walking along a road on the Corniche by Sharjah Creek. In the foreground a boy, three men, and a girl at the far right walk along the Corniche road. On the left wood is piled up on the shore beside a donkey and some beached rowboats. Further along large dhows (sailboats) sit in shallow water and on the beach. On the right houses built of coral line the creek. In the far background two boys can be seen walking along the road near a couched camel.

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.
