Description

Negative showing the Esna barrage. This photograph was taken by Sgt. Johnson of the 436 Welsh Field Company c. 1917. This is similar to slide EC1581 which formed part of a lecture which he gave. The notes from his lecture read 'Here we have views of the Esna barrage taken from the shore which gives a good idea of what the barrage is like and it is here shown to advantage' The 'Esna barrage' built 1906-1908 is near Edfu.
