View of traditional buildings in the city of Abha. In the near central distance a large multi-storeyed square building sits at the edge of a town square. It is built in the traditional style for this region from adobe bricks topped with parallel lines of raqf (slate) tiles. Similar buildings sit on either side of the building and in the background.

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.
