A street in Cairo

24 Mar 1862

RCIN 2700904

This photograph is meant to represent a ‘typical’ street in the city centre. There are some shops at ground level, and the floors above are residential. The windows are all screened to prevent excessive sunshine and dust entering the buildings, but the narrow patterns in the screens allow light to filter inside. Acquired by the Prince of Wales, 1862
