This photograph was taken in 1921, and shows a Bedouin from the Beni Hassan tribe. I like this picture because the man is well-armed, as we would hope for. I like the way he has his two bandoliers worn symmetrically across his shoulders. Also, he has a handy knife in his belt. No firearms are in view, but one would expect he would have some nearby.
