View of locals walking along the Corniche road by Sharjah Creek. In the foreground a man wearing a khanjar (dagger) on a belt over his thobe (long shirt) walks past three masts lying in the sand on the Corniche road. A man and two boys walk along the road behind him. On the right houses made of coral abut the road, while on the left large dhows (sailboats) sit on the beach and in the shallow water of Sharjah Creek. In the far background a high shade canopy crosses the road on which people are walking.

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.
