View of two men standing in front of houses in the city of Dubai. Two men wearing waistcoats over their thobes (long shirts) and holding camel sticks stand in the midst of a wide bare courtyard. Behind them on the left are a number of one, two and three storied house, some of which are crowned with wooden scaffolding. In the far background, a wooden barjeel (wind tower) rises high above the houses. Right of the men a single storey building with grated windows and a domed ceiling, likely a mosque, sits alongside the courtyard.

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.
