View of an abra (ferry boat) launch at Dubai Creek. In the left foreground ferries are docked at a ferry boat launch on Dubai creek. Each abra is a rowboat covered with a cloth canopy. Behind the launch a house with two wind towers (barjeel) sits along 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.
