280 x 216 mm. A view showing a steamer proceeding along the Suez Canal, with high banks of sand on either side and a small steam launch moored in the foreground. The meaning of the title has not been fully determined; whether Aglaea is the name of the steamer is unknown. Photograph by Zangakai.

View looking NW along the central square of Alexandria (also variously known as Place Mehemet Ali and the Great Square), with the equestrian statue of Mohammed Ali in the middleground and the Palais de Justice beyond.

Its present name stems from the medieval belief that it marked the site of the tomb of Pompey the Great. Photograph by Zangaki.
