Description

Lantern slide. Showing the Collossi of Memnon on the West Bank at Thebes. 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 Colossi on Memnon or the Great Statues of Thebes. They are made of sandstone. They were both monoliths originally but the northern colossos fell and was restored with sandstone blocks in the reign of Septimus Severus...'. Similar view to EC1710 and EC1735.
