About this item
View in Mohammerah [Khorramshahr]. A narrow creek at the left of the photograph is one of the many small waterways that lead towards the Shatt El-Arab.
In the centre background stands a two-storey house with two large mashrabiyya and a roof-terrace. In front of the house a small bridge crosses the creek from a pathway that extends from the right foreground to the background alongside a high brick wall. Several women walk away from the camera along this path, carrying earthenware jugs and other bundles.
