Description

Lantern slide. Showing the sunrise at Esna. 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 'We next come to Esna where we are greeted with a sun-rise taken at 4.20 in the morning'. This view is similar to EC1751.
