Lantern slide. Showing the Delta barrage at Cairo. 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 barrage was designed by the French engineer Moughal Bey and was finally complete in 1862. It was replaced by a new barrage in 1939. This view is similar to EC1748.
