Description

Lantern slide. Showing a village in Nubia. 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 Bishereen Arab camp at Nubia between Assouan and Philae. It gives one a good idea of the type of dwellings that are to be seen throughout Egypt in most of the villages...'
