A fellow prisoner of Neufeld in Yakoub's courtyard, 1898
Scope and Contents
160 x 109 mm. A view showing a newly released fellow-prisoner of Charles Neufeld's in Yakoub's courtyard (Yakoub was a half-brother of the Khalifa). This man is probably Ibrahim Fawzi Pasha. Originally a cadet in the Egyptian administration in the Sudan, in 1874 he served under Gordon in Equatoria. Emin Pasha took his place when he was convicted of irregularities and for a time he was Arabi Pasha's chief of Police in Cairo (1882). Again employed by Gordon, he was in charge of the Egyptian forces during the siege of Khartoum. During his imprisonment he ran a coffee shop in Omdurman and spent some years in jail with Neufeld. The photograph is stuck on to an album page entitled 'Omdurman'.
