View of adobe and slate buildings in the city of Abha. In the foreground a dog walks down a road towards a tree. In the distance beyond a cluster of one and two storey buildings sits on a low rise beyond the road. The buildings are built with adobe bricks topped with parallel lines of raqf (slate) tiles.

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.
