Scenes from Old Cairo and Giza
"City of a Thousand Minarets".... and mosques, markets and madrasas

About the Book
A photographic record of Old Cairo; a scene destined to vanish soon as a way of life many hundred of years old is under pressure as never before from a burgeoning population and 'the modern world'.
Another book in the "Scenes from..." series ( Nagaland, Ethiopia, Mongolia, Seville and Cordoba, New Zealand, Chile and Patagonia).
