Lantern slide. Showing the scarab monument at Karnak. This photograph was taken by Sgt. Johnson of the 436 Welsh Field Company c. 1917. It formed part of a lecture which he gave. The notes from his lecture read 'A monument to the holy scarab near the Holy Lake at Karnak...'. This scarab monument was dedicated by Amenhotep III. Tourists are now told that if they walk around it 7 times they will never again have love problems. This is a similar view to EC1728.
