in another time . . .
The postcard above show the Cairo Museum in Tahrir Square c1908.
This next postcard dates, I think, from the late 1960s or 1970s, you can see the museum and the buildings which are being shown on the tv news.
Over on the BBC news I just saw the images of the human chain around the museum today as the people strive to protect it.

Most interesting comparisons. Sure hope there is a peaceful resolve to this conflict.
