View of two dhows (sailboats) moored in Dubai Creek. Two small dhows, each equipped with four rowing oars, are moored in calm water at the side of Dubai Creek. In the distance an oarsman rows an abra (ferry) carrying a single passenger. On the opposite bank of the creek two storey houses and 'arish huts made from palm fronds sit along the far side of the creek.

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.
