Group portrait of four of Sheikh Shakhbut bin Sultan Al Nahyan's retainers on the Corniche in Abu Dhabi. Two men and two boys kneel in a line in at the Corniche beach in Abu Dhabi. The man on the far left holds a rifle. The boy and the man in the centre both have camel sticks. The young boy at the far right is biting his fingernail. Behind them sailboats (dhows) are moored close to 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.
