Finding Old Photographs of Fujairah, United Arab Emirates

I was in a Fujairah office the other day and on display was a photograph of an early ruler of the emirate. It was a superb photo and it made me wonder how many other old photos are hanging around the walls of homes and offices in Fujairah and in the other emirates.

Searching for Old Fujairah Photos
This got me searching for web sites where old photographs of Fujairah scenes are posted. I have listed some below but most of them are recent of new.

This is a very incomplete collection. Do send me the links to other major sites of heritage photos for viewers of this site to enjoy.
