Description

View of buildings in the city of Abha. In the near central distance sits an ornate multi-storeyed square building. It is built in the traditional style for this region from adobe bricks topped with parallel lines of raqf (slate) tiles. In the background many more buildings are visible in the city, and in the far distance low hills rise above the horizon.

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.
