Description

Lantern slide. Showing the Luxor temple colonnade. 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 'The temple of Luxor often alluded to as the most beautiful colonnade in Egypt, the south end of this temple was erected by Amenhotep 3rd in the 18th Dynasty and the north end by Rameses the Great'. This is a similar view to EC1723 and EC1724, EC1725.
