In documentaries you see many images of what Egypt looked like in the time of the Pharaohs. But do you wonder what it looked like in more recent centuries?
Today we share a slideshow of autochromes taken in the 1920s by Gervais Courtellemont and W. Robert Moore for National Geographic. They show familiar Cairo city locations and famous sites such as the pyramids. Some of the scenes are not much changed from what you will see today in Egypt, others show clearly just how much things have changed in the last 90 years.
