How to be a Retronaut website published an amazing collection of colored photos from Egypt in 1920s, it is must be seen and shared.
These photos were taken for the National geographic. They are amazing,seriously amazing. I was waiting for the right time to share it with you.
The photos show Cairo, Old Cairo and Al Azhar , Giza and the pyramids plateau when the Nile reached the Pyramids during the flood. The photos also show Luxor , Aswan and even Sinai. The faces of Egyptians are the same despite some of the clothes are different now in certain areas.
“How to be Retronaut” got amazing stuff , I love that post about the Hindenburg class airship from inside in color , it was amazing .
