View of two camels couched on the Corniche at Sharjah Creek. In the foreground a camel and her calf are couched on a dirt road in front of large beached dhows (sailboats). On the right two men stand by a house while a man wearing a cartridge belt and carrying a rifle walks down the road behind them. In the far background people work on one of the beached dhows.

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.
