Description
Close up portrait of an elderly Bedouin man standing in front of a wall in Dubai. An elderly Bedouin man with a large white beard stands in front of a white rock wall. He wears a large ghutra (headscarf) and a thobe (shirt). Wilfred Thesiger has described this Bedouin man both as a Mansuri (a tribesman of the Manasir Bedouin) and as a tribesman of the Murra tribe. This image was taken during Wilfred Thesiger's May 10-18, 1948 stay in Sharjah and Dubai.

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.
