The National Archives Presents Historic Outdoor Exhibition to Visitors of the Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival

The National Archives exhibited dozens of historical photos at Sheikh Zayed Heritage Festival 2015 to form a national documentary exhibition available to all visitors.  Most of the photos displayed outdoors are vivid and clear. They depict the life of the Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his fellow founding brethren, and their march of giving, construction, and development. They also depict the U.A.E. artifacts and heritage and the development and prosperity of its force represented by its army of protective heroes.
The National Archives selected the photos exhibited in the festival from thousands of photos that it holds, documenting the history and heritage of the U.A.E. and the Gulf region, and portraying the great efforts of the Founding Fathers, led by the Founding Leader Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan to up-grade and elevate the United Arab Emirates and the Emirati people, protecting them against hardship and cruelty of life and taking them to the prosperous reality experienced by the people of the U.A.E. today.

The National Archives, with its historical, documentary and heritage photo exhibition at Sheikh Zayed sixth Heritage Festival, aims at providing visitors of different age and cultural categories a glimpse of the U.A.E.'s past and present, and to remind them of the efforts exerted for the promotion of the construction march, and the establishment of the Union and of its leading experience.
The photos exhibited in the festival were characterized by their large size, so they can be seen from a distance, and their broad and solid cement-based frames that allow visitors to sit and rest on their base, while providing the festival yards and halls with an aesthetic scene. Those old black-and-white historical photos, along with other colorful modern ones, attracted festival visitors of various segments, and in its turn presented various aspects of the U.A.E. history, heritage, artifacts, and historical architecture.
