View of an Arab family eating in front of an 'arish hut on a Dubai street. In the foreground a group of women and children sit on the street, arranged in a circle around a box with a dish of food on it. On the left an 'arish hut made of palm fronds abuts the street, enclosed on one side with a fence that is also made from palm fronds. In the centre of the street two men and a woman walk down the street, past a high coral wall on the right. Further back a square two storey building with wooden window grates overlooks the street.

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.
