View of men unloading dhows (sailboats) on the Corniche in the town of Abu Dhabi. In the foreground a wave breaks on the sand. At the centre one man stands in the water near a dhow and a rowboat. At the boat a second man receives a large sack of goods from one of the sailors onboard. In the far left background two boats bob in the water.

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.
