Description

Full length standing portrait of two boys in front of Al Fahidi fort in the Bastakiya Quarter. A boy wearing a ghutra (headscarf) and wraparound skirt stands in sand on the left, in front of a few 'arish houses enclosed by a high fence. The houses are made of palm fronds and the central house leans slightly to the left. Behind a round corner tower of Al Fahidi fort rises above the 'arish houses. On the far right another boy wearing a thobe (long shirt) and ghutra stands in the sand. In the far background behind him two disused cannons sit below the fort walls.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
