View of a courtyard inside a house in Dubai. Square arches form a long canopy in front of a line of rooms flanking a wide empty courtyard. Both the courtyard and the canopy are bare of decorations and furniture. Wind towers (barjeel) sit atop one and two storey houses in the distance behind the courtyard.

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.
