View of locals in a suq (market) in the city of Dubai. In the foreground a young boy in a light-coloured waistcoat and thobe (long shirt) stands on the right. On the left many people sit or stroll beneath a covered thoroughfare. In the centre left foreground a woman sits beneath a cloth canopy strung between two wooden poles. Her merchandise is spread out on the ground in front of her.

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.
