View of camels resting at low tide at Dubai Creek in the Shindagha district. In the near distance a large group of camels are couched in the sand. In the distance beyond the square stone Shindagha watchtower rises high above nearby 'arish huts and beached dhows (sailboats). In the far right distance, one and two storey buildings line the shore 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.
