back in January of '42 . . .

"Taken at Giza - Cairo in
 January '42 in front of the
pyramid of Cheops and Sphinx.
in Lf: foreground the temple of Ra."

I am always so pleased to find old photos of Egypt so this was a happy find, even though it is a bit tatty round the edges.  I wish the guys had written their names on the reverse too.  They were obviously enjoying some leave with a spot of sightseeing.

  1. I never come across photos of old Egypt, so I'd be excited too. Imagine what a fun adventure it must have been for these two.

  2. Boy, nothing captures my imagination more than the Sphinx. Ever since I was a kid it always intrigued me.
