View of buildings lining the shore of Dubai Creek. In the foreground a moored dhow (sailboat) sits in the middle of Dubai Creek. On the shore behind it a large, three storey building overlooks the creek on the right. A fenced enclosure sits in front of it on the sand, and further down the bank a number of 'arish huts and structures made of palm fronds sit alongside the one and two storey buildings lining the shore.

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.
