1976 Egypt

469. Egypt 1976 – Aswan

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


I had these pictures down as Cairo as 02 was of the Sphinx. As the scanning progressed things did not seem right and I started putting them in Google Images for a reverse image find and eventually worked out we were looking at Aswan. The Sphinx has gone into the ‘odds’ pile.

When Doris visited Egypt before in 1962 (<- that’s a link to it by the way), the dam was still under construction and the monuments were still in their original positions or yards away from the Nile. Fourteen years later she returned to see the result of the flooding.
