Description

Three-quarter length group portrait of locals in a market in Dubai. A group of men and boys stand in front of closed merchant stalls at a market. At the centre two young men wear waistcoats over their long shirts (thobe). The young man at centre left also wears a thick 'agal (head rope) over his ghutra (headscarf). A third man in a plain thobe stands beside them on the right, while a group of boys crowds behind the men on the left.

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.
