Cool Old Pictures of Arabia in the 1940s

السلام عليكم
Alhamdulillah I found these cool old pictures of Arabia in the 1940s taken by a British officer named Wilfred Thesiger:

These pictures are not only in outstanding quality but also offer us a view of the world that many of our forefathers lived in only a short while ago.

I wonder if this is Farid's granddad lol:
