View of locals at a water reservoir in the Al Hasa Oasis. In the foreground a woman stands with her child while a man waters a donkey. In the background a wall with a large sluice gate runs along the far side of the lake. Palm trees grow in an plantation behind the gate.

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.
