Description
People and pack animals are on a road lined, on both sides, by tall trees.
The photograph is in a book with a typed description. The description: "(Exodus, 1:8.)--'Now there arose up a new king over Egypt which knew not Joseph.' We give a beautiful picture above illustrating a scene in Egypt just across the River Nile at the turn of the road, as we pass from Cairo to the Pyramids. One meets here in the early morning market folk coming from the country with donkeys laden with all kinds of vegetables; camels bearing fresh loads of clover, and expecting from the sale of these to take back in the afternoon such necessaries from the stores as they need. This is a macadamized road lined on either side by acacia trees. This picture was taken by our artist instantaneously, hence the people appear to be in motion. This scene is about a mile out from Cairo and about eight miles from the Pyramids, though the Pyramids were in sight even at this point." "Franklin Co Eng-Chi" is printed at the bottom of the photograph. See 5313BAI/LVii39CAJS (Voyager # 361009).
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
