The colonnade of the Temple of Luxor, Egypt, with the Mosque of Abu'l Haggag
The north end of the colonnade of Amenhotep III in the Temple of Luxor, looking roughly east across the court of Rameses II with (on the left) the Mosque of Abu'l Haggag, built in its north-east corner earlier in the 19th century. One of the pylons of Rameses II is just visible on the left. At this date the columns of the temple were buried to about half their depth and the Rameses court also largely underground. A Union flag is shown flying above the colonnade for uncertain reasons, though Britain was deeply involved supporting the Egyptian government of the Khedive Ismail at the time, and using Egypt as base for supressing the slave trade of the upper Nile in Sudan and beyond. The drawing is inscribed by Cooke, 'LUXOR' lower left and dated '16 Mar 74' lower right.
