Description

Negative showing the south gate of the temple at Karnak. This photograph was taken by Sgt. Johnson of the 436 Welsh Field Company c. 1917. It is similar to slide EC1591 which formed part of a lecture which he gave. The notes from his lecture read 'Here we have the south gate of the temple at Karnak (Karnak in arabic means window)....' This is the Karnak Gate of Ptolemy III Euergetes.
