Lantern slide. Showing the obelisks of Hatshepsut and Thuthmose I 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 'The obelisk of Queen Hattisu at Karnak which is of equal size to this, was quarried out and despatched and erected in seven months from the time at which the order for it was given....'. This view is similar to EC1749.
