View of crowds at the suq (market) in the town of Al Hofuf in Al Hasa Oasis. In the foreground a date seller stands in the middle of a street, surrounded by piles of large woven containers (possibly containing dates). Low single storey buildings line both sides of the street. In the background many people walk through the market stalls.

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.
