Description

View of a young man on the beach in Dubai Creek. In the foreground a young man wearing an undershirt and a wraparound skirt stands in sand beside Dubai Creek. All around him dhows (sailboats) are moored in the creek and beached in the nearby sand. On the right a boy is climbing off a beached boat near to a woman wearing a black head covering. In the far distance one and two storey houses, some with wind towers (barjeel), line the far side of the creek.

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.
