View of locals sitting alongside a dhow (sailboat) beached on the shore at Dubai Creek. In the left foreground three men walk along the shore beside beached dhows. Behind them a crowd of men sit beneath a large dhow beached on wooden piles at the side of Dubai Creek. In the water on the right two men stand on a sunken dhow. Further back many one and two storey houses line the banks of the creek.

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.
