View of dhows (sailboats) and a rowboat on Dubai Creek. In the foreground a man stands in a small boat beached on the shore, while to the left a small dhow is moored close to shore. In the distance beyond a boom, a large cargo-carrying sailboat, is moored further out in the creek. In the background one and two storey houses line the far shore of Dubai 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.
