Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's party at a well near Al Hubi village. In the foreground a number of Wilfred Thesiger's Bedouin travelling companions stand around a well. On the left one man lifts up a bag of water for a camel to drink from. On the right two members of the party pull water from a well that has been reinforced with wood. Around them other members of the party stand with camels beside a tree. In the distance beyond a vast sand flat stretches out to the far horizon.

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.
