A set of rare photographs, most probably taken by professional photographers travelling to Bahrain around 1955-60. Most of the images are captioned in pencil, showing sites in Al-Muharraq and Manama (a tailor's shop, tobacco shop, hospital court yard Muharraq, Arab windows in Muharraq, wind towers, etc.) and everyday scenes (loading a sheep onto a raft, a falconer, etc.).


About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
