View of a boy standing in front of a badan, a small dhow (sailboat), on Shindagha beach in Dubai. A boy sits on the gunwale of the badan wearing a taqiyah cap, a vest and a large cloth over his shoulder. Further beyond locals and fishermen walk on the beach and rest next to beached boats. In the right distance, a cluster of 'arish huts, made from palm fronds, sit close together on the shore, and in the far distance a barjeel (wind tower) from a building in the Shindagha district is visible.

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.
