Half length portrait of an Arab man, one of Wilfred Thesiger's guides, at a well near the city of Sharjah during the party's journey from Jabal Sumeini to Sharjah. The man, a retainer of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, stands looking into the far left distance. He wears a thobe (long shirt) and an embroidered ghutra (headscarf) topped with an agal (head rope).

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.
