Boats and coastal life in and around Dubai's harbour

[Dubai and Sharjah]. Collection of six original photographs.

Dubai and Sharjah, early 1940s.

6 black and white photographs. 70 x 95 and 60 x 83 mm. Framed and glazed as a set.


The photos depict images of boats and coastal life in and around Dubai's harbour, two women wearing abayas with hijabs and niqabs, walking in a desert plain of Sharjah, as well as desert dwellings and ports and boardwalks in Sharjah. This collection gives us a glimpse of the Dubai and Sharjah before the construction boom that started in the 1970s. Overall an intriguing collection in very good condition, capturing the coastal and desert life of a bygone era.
