View of a covered suq (market) in the city of Dubai. Locals walk through a covered market. Merchants sit at stalls that line both sides of the market aisle. Woven baskets and boxes sit along the near right side of the aisle. Rays of scattered sunlight filter through the palm frond canopy covering the market.

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.
