View of a building in the city of Abha. A square multi-storeyed building sits on the left. It is built in the traditional style for this region from adobe bricks topped with parallel lines of raqf (slate) tiles. In the background a few more square buildings sit in the near distance, and in the far distance low hills rise above the horizon.

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.
