View of the Shindagha district from Dubai Creek. In the foreground a small boat and a large, heavily loaded dhow (sailboat) are beached in the sand. Behind the boats a number of people stand in the sand by piles of coral, used for building houses, which lie on the shore. In the left distance a large enclave of 'arish huts and enclosures made from palm fronds sit in the sand. In the central distance a square stone watchtower, the Shindagha, rises high above nearby buildings. On the far right side of the creek one and two storey houses fill the Shindagha district.
