Description
View of a group of men standing with their camels outside Al Muwaiji Fort in Al Ain. Men preparing for a camel race move their camels into a straight line on a flat plain. At the centre a boy yawns as he holds the head rope of his camel, while behind him a man rides his camel towards the line of camels. Large bushes grown in the background in the far left and right, and further behind a tree grows in the distance. This image was taken between December 20, 1948, and January 27, 1949, during which time Wilfred Thesiger stayed with Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in Al Ain and joined him on a number of hunting excursions.

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.
