Description

View of the Shindagha district from Dubai Creek at sunset. In the near distance a man walks across shallow water towards a man in a rowboat waiting on the right. Further behind a boy plays near a small dhow (sailboat) moored in the water. On the far bank 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.
