View of boats moored and beached along the Corniche in the city of Sharjah. In the right foreground two rowboats have been pulled up onto a beach beside a pile of wood, and behind them another four rowboats are beached on rocky sand. Three dhows (sailboats) are moored in shallow water left of the beach. In the distance many large dhows are beached along the shore.

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.
