Boulevard Abbas - Heliopolis

The postcard shows Boulevard Abbas in the suburb of Heliopolis, Cairo.  Sent from Egypt to England in 1918.  This street is not far from the Presidential Palace, which is currently in the news.

"One of the main streets  nearly all these places are let on the flat system.  When I came to Egypt first, we used to route march through these streets every morning.  It was fine.
