Old and New Cairo

Over the next week or so,  while I am off on holidays,  I will be posting archaeological or historical  images that I  love for one reason or another. This image is a painting by Louis Comfort Tiffany, entitled ” On the Way between Old and New Cairo, Citadel Mosque of Mohammed Ali, and Tombs of the Mamelukes.”  It dates to around  1872.
