Description

View of adobe and slate buildings in the city of Abha. In the near distance sits a cluster of one and two storey buildings built from adobe bricks topped with parallel lines of raqf (slate) tiles. In the far distance Al-Milha and Al Shada palaces are visible in the background.

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.
