View of people playing in Dubai Creek and a sailing dhow. In the left distance a dhow (sailboat) sails up Dubai Creek, past the one and two storey houses lining the shore. In the foreground a man and a boy relax in shallow water on the right. The boy is playing with one of a few model boats which float in the water around them. Behind them a dhow is moored close to shore.

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.
