View of an Arab man with two donkeys and locals resting in a street in the city of Abha. Buildings line either side of the street. The buildings on the left are topped only with adobe, while the building on the right is topped with a layer of adobe and parallel lines of raqf (slate) tiles to prevent weather erosion.

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.
