View of Al Fahidi fort in the Bastakiya quarter of old Dubai. In the foreground 'arish huts, made from palm fronds, sit below the tall round corner tower of Al Fahidi Fort. Mounds of stones lay below the walls of the fort. In the left background a few wind towers (barjeel) rise from the rooftops of buildings behind the fort.

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.
