View of locals strolling through a suq (market) in the city of Sharjah. In the foreground a boy in a collared shirt and a wraparound skit stands in the centre of an open area at a market. A number of women sit in the shade on the left, in front of a fence made of palm fronds. At the centre two men and a young boy stand at an entrance to the market, which is covered with a large high canopy. In the background number of people walk along a market thoroughfare.

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.
