46 Extraordinary Color Photos of Egypt in the 1920s

The history of Egypt has been long and rich, due to the flow of the Nile river, with its fertile banks and delta. Its rich history also comes from its native inhabitants and outside influence. Much of Egypt's ancient history was a mystery until the secrets of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were deciphered with the discovery and help of the Rosetta Stone.

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still standing. The Lighthouse of Alexandria, one of the other Seven Wonders, is gone. The Library of Alexandria was the only one of its kind for centuries.

These amazing photos below were taken for the National Geographic. They show Cairo, Old Cairo and Al Azhar , Giza and the pyramids plateau when the Nile reached the Pyramids during the flood. The photos also show Luxor , Aswan and even Sinai. The faces of Egyptians are the same despite some of the clothes are different now in certain areas.
