View of the Shindagha district from Dubai Creek. In the right foreground four men stand on a small dhow (sailboat) moored in Dubai Creek. Further back a larger dhow and a rowboat are beached in low water. People walk along the shore. In the left distance a large enclave of 'arish huts and enclosures made from palm fronds sit below tall buildings. In the central distance the square stone Shindagha watchtower rises high above nearby buildings, and further right beached dhows line the shore in front of buildings in the Shindagha district.

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.
