View of the Shindagha district on Dubai Creek at high tide. In the foreground 'arish huts and enclosures made from palm fronds line Dubai Creek. People walk through the tide which has risen almost to the 'arish huts. On the right a dhow (sailboat) is moored in shallow water. On the far bank the square stone Shindagha watchtower rises high above nearby buildings, and further right beached dhows line the shore in front of buildings in 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.
