View of a small fishing baqqarah (a type of sailboat) moored along the creek or Deira Corniche in Dubai. A small baqqarah is moored in shallow water with its sails tied down to its yard. The boat has two sets of rowing oars, which sit along the gunwales. In the distance beyond a sand bank stretches out in front of the ocean in a straight line.

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.
