View of the town of Ras Al Khaimah. In the foreground a boy with a donkey walks across a sandy plain dotted two stands of trees. The plain is bordered by 'arish huts and enclosures made from palm fronds. In the background lies a creek and in the far distance the Ru'us Al Jibal mountains rise high above the horizon.

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.
