Description

View of Wilfred Thesiger's sailing companions making camp on one of the Abu Dhabi islands. Four men sit in a semicircle beside a cloth tent erected against a low rock wall. Behind them on the left two boys stand watching the men. A third man sits to the left of the standing boys. Flat rocky ground, sparsely dotted with small shrubs and grasses, stretches out in all directions. In the far background, a calm, flat sea fills 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.
