A Glimpse into Egypt in the 1920s

I came across these beautiful pictures of Egypt captured in the 1920s by Gervais Courtellemont and W. Robert Moore for the National Geographic. They've left me in such awe that I decided to share them with everyone. What a wonderful glimpse back in time it is...

Sometimes I wish I could be taken back in time, when it was more peaceful and humble...

All pictures are from here. These are just some of the pictures featured...
