Description

View of houses with wind towers in Dubai. A number of flat-roofed houses sit in the foreground. In the distance beyond a large two storey house is topped with a few high wind towers (barjeel). On the right a number of 'arish huts are clustered together, one of which also has a wind tower.

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.
