View of a dhow (sailboat) and a rowboat moored in Dubai Creek at sunset. In the foreground sailors pull a rowboat alongside a moored dhow. In the left background a pile of coral sits in the tide. In the right background the square Shindagha watchtower rises high above the creek alongside the one and two storey houses of the Shindagha district.

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.
