View of a dhow in Dubai Creek at sunset. In the foreground water ripples on the dark surface of Dubai Creek. In the distance a dhow (sailboat) is moored in the water. Further beyond the silhouette of Dubai is visible along the far bank, including the square Shindagha watchtower in the Shindagha district.

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.
