I thought I'd continue with some more vintage postcards from Egypt. These two views are of the main railway station in central Cairo, neither card has been postally used so dating them is an estimation. I think the first one is probably about 1915 and the second one maybe a decade later or even into the 1930s. I don't know the date for the addition of the pond and garden in the centre of the square. Needless to say today's view is very different, for one thing the 6 October flyover going from the bridge over the Nile then over the Ramesis area (of the station) towards Heliopolis, makes such a clear view impossible.
