View of two people on a street in Sharjah. In the foreground a man sits on a wooden bench alongside a dirt thoroughfare in Sharjah. Behind him a young man wearing a thobe (long shirt) and ghutra (headscarf) walks down the middle of the street carrying two pieces of wood. In the background a large covered structure made of palm fronds, likely a suq (market), sits below the high wall of a ruined building.

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.
