Full length standing portrait of a boy in front of a house at Dubai Creek. A boy wearing a ghutra (headscarf) and wraparound skirt stands in the sand front of a bare walled, two storey house. The house faces onto Dubai Creek, where a few locals are standing. A two storey barjeel (wind tower) atop its roof. On the right two 'arish huts, the rightmost of which is enclosed behind a palm fence, sit in front of the house on the right.

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.
