Lantern slide. Showing the Temple of Isis on the Island of Philae. 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 'In front of the Great Pylon are two fallen lions of pink granite which stood on pedastals of which only one still remain. This is not the Great Pylon, but is the only photograph of a Pylon of the Isis Temple that I have' This is a similar view to negative EC1706 and EC1715.
