Description

Lantern slide. Showing a Felucca at Luxor. 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 'This is the boat that I engaged for my trip from Assouan to Luxor which took 19 3/4 hours. The jouney was 140 miles'.
