Description

View of a crowd of locals and traders at the suq (market) in the town of Abha. In the foreground traders stand with their baskets of merchandise, surrounded by local buyers. Behind them a large crowd of people and animals fills the town square. Further beyond a two storey building fronted with a wooden canopy lines the square.

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.
