Description

View of a row of houses overlooking a large square in the city of Abha. A row of two storey buildings made of stone sit overlooking a large square, in which a few traders and buyers are gathered. All of the buildings are topped with adobe and parallel lines of raqf (slate) tiles to prevent weather erosion. In the background a line of low hills rises in the distance.

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.
