View of the door to the prison in Al Fahidi fort in the Bastakiya quarter of old Dubai. A man leans against a ledge beside the door to the Dubai's old prison, then housed in Al Fahidi Fort. Behind him the large wooden door is decorated with brass strips and heavy rivets. A second man stands in a small opening in the door, looking out into 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.
