View of a boy walking past Al Fahidi fort in the Bastakiya quarter of old Dubai. A boy in a ghutra (headscarf) and a thobe (long shirt) walks across a mound of stones below the walls of Al Fahidi fort. On the left an 'arish hut made of palm fronds sits beside the fort's high round corner tower. A flag files from a flagpole atop the tower. In the background two wind towers (barjeel) sit atop a two storey house behind the fort.

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.
