View of traders and shoppers at the open air market in the town of Qalat Bishah. A group of Arab men and a few children gather in the foreground around a man sitting in the sand. On the right a man unloads cargo from a couched camel. In the background a row of mud framed shelters sits at the far edge of the market grounds.

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.
