View of the shoreline at Dubai Creek. On the left a rowboat is moored beside a cloth-covered structure that extends into the creek. Nearby an abra (ferry boat) sits on the shore. On the right two porters carry cargo on their shoulders. Behind them a few men stand on the bank, which is lined with 'arish huts, made from palm fronds, and a few two storey buildings.

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.
