View of two small boats moored in Dubai Creek. A rowboat and a small dhow (sailboat) are moored in Dubai Creek alongside some 'arish and coral buildings. A shade canopy made from palm fronds is built above a reinforced wall separating the creek from the town. Large wooden chests sit under the canopy. A few men stand on the shore and alongside nearby buildings.

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.
