Description

View of dhows (sailboats) moored a below a rock outcrop during Wilfred Thesiger's trip through the Abu Dhabi islands with Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his retainers. A steep rock outcrop on the left rises above a dark rock and sand beach on an Abu Dhabi island. Two men, one of whom is carrying a sack on his back, walk towards two boats moored close to the shore. In the far distance across the water another low island stretches along the horizon. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's week and a half long sailing trip around the Abu Dhabi Islands with Sheikh Hazaa bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Sheikh Khalid bin Sultan Al Nahyan and their retainers in March 1948.

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.
