Editor’s Note: These photographs may look old-fashioned now, but when we first started posting photos most images were scanned in from film negatives, which has a very different color gamut than digital, and the resolution on the internet was very poor. Images needed to be only a few kilobytes so that you could download them with a phone modem; now they are hundreds of times bigger. Learn more about our original film photographs. Fortunately, I found the original images for this pictorial. I hope you enjoy this trip back in time.
Update: We recently found our higher-res version on our backup. These images are about as good as they get for that time period.
Great photo novella of Egypt. I am especially drawn to the photo of Egyptian women waterbearers. So stark and far from my water experiences. It was shot in a nice brownish light or perhaps with film that produces those tones. Perfect for Egypt. It reminded me of some old Erroll Flynn movie. Nice work. ~ MD
