View of three men sitting under a tree in front of Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain oasis, then the home of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. In the near central distance three Arab men relax in the sand under a tree. Behind them, on the right, an 'arish hut built of palm fronds sits beneath a tree. In the background sits Al Muwaiji Fort. To the far left of the fort a mosque sits beside the fort's corner tower.

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.
