View of men standing in front of houses in the city of Dubai. On the left two men holding camel sticks stand talking in the street in front of two high walled, two storey houses. The houses are likely made of coral, and each has a barjeel (wind tower) atop its roof, and a third barjeel is visible in the right background. On the far right a man carries a trunk past an 'arish hut on a dirt platform that sits alongside one of the houses. In the near right foreground a man wearing a thobe (long shirt) and waistcoat adjusts his ghutra (headscarf).

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.
