View of coral and 'arish huts in Dubai. In the foreground a woman carrying a trunk on her head walks past high stacks of coral sitting in the sand. Behind her a compound of 'arish huts, made from palm fronds, are enclosed by a large fence. Behind the huts is a large two storey building, likely made of coral. It has high arches and a number of wind towers (barjeel) atop its roof.

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.
