View of an abra (ferry boat) launch at Dubai Creek. In the foreground boats sit in Dubai creek in front of a shaded ferry boat launch. The ferries, rowboats covered with cloth canopies, are docked in a line along the creek in a break between two houses. Each of the houses is topped with a barjeel (wind tower).

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.
