78 x 78 mm. A view showing Captain Adolf von Tiedemann (1865-1915) standing at the bottom of a flight of steps (at Aswan ?). Tiedemann was an officer with Peters' Emin Pasha Expedition and served as an observer during the Dongola Expedition.
286 x 222 mm. A view from Elephantine Island looking across the Nile towards the Cataract Hotel, an imposing building that overlooks the river south of the town.

This collection of photographs by D. S. George, F. Fiorillo and G. Lekegian provides an important record of the construction work on the dam, with great detail discernible in some of the larger pictures. In addition there are photographs reflecting aspects of British social life in Egypt (plates 40-60) and the outbreak of war in 1914 (plates 61-67). The captions have been used as titles and have been recorded as found. Titles composed by the cataloguer are enclosed in square brackets.
78 x 78 mm. A view showing Count Calderari standing on a flight of steps (at Aswan ?). Presumably Calderari was the Italian observer on the expedition.
233 x 156 mm. A view showing a large crocodile (probably dead) on the banks of the Nile in the Philae region.
291 x 243 mm. A view looking down onto and along the top of the dam shortly after the official opening with the reservoir, at left, filled with flood water.
299 x 239 mm. A view showing Egyptian labourers digging an irrigation canal with horse drawn railway trolleys for transporting earth.
229 x 164 mm. A pleasing composition looking up towards the ruined mosque and the rocky hillside from the bank of the Nile, with a clump of palms in the foreground.
285 x 232 mm. A view showing a section of the eastern end of the dam with a small settlement of houses in the foreground (probably the residence of European engineers and supervisors). In the distance the partially submerged island of Philae can just be seen.
292 x 143 mm. A view looking along the length of the dam a month before the official opening showing the reservoir on the south side filled with water and some of the sluice gates in operation. In the foreground is a section of navigation locks which bypass the dam, with operating machinery in position.
280 x 231 mm. A view looking along the dam showing the newly constructed aprons beneath the sluices (compare with Y3041B/1). In the foreground stands a massive pile of cubes of granite awaiting amalgamation into the dam.
287 x 230 mm. A view looking along the northern face of the dam from the West bank. The central sluices of the dam are open, those in the foreground shut off. The photograph gives a clear view of one of the newly constructed ramps.
256 x 223 mm. A view showing part of the navigation channel and locks with a section of the dam beyond and the full reservoir in the background. Photographer unknown, probably F. Fiorillo.
814 x 202 mm. (panoramic view composed of three joined prints). A view showing the temples of Isis and ‘Pharaoh’s Bed’ (Temple of Harendotes) under several feet of water from the Aswan Reservoir, with the Island of Biggen in the background. The buildings on the island have now been removed to Agilkia (see ‘The Times’, March 8th 1980).
Approximately 220 x 160 mm. Photographer unknown.
241 x 193 mm. A view showing the Temple of Isis and Phaoraoh's Bed (Temple of Harendotes) on the island of Philae, under several feet of water from the reservoir at Aswan.
288 x 231 mm. A view looking down from the dam onto work in progress on the easternmost section where the aprons are not yet complete. Here workmen can be seen laying in place the granite blocks of the ramp necessary to break the fall of water from the sluices.
287 x 231 mm. A view showing labourers at work on a section of the reservoir side of the dam. The work seems to be connected with altering the size of the sluice gates but may be preliminary work on the thickening and heightening of the dam which took place between 1907 and 1912. See also Y3041B/21. Fiorillo, F.
A similar view to Y3041B/19 but showing work at a less advanced stage (the masonry wall visible in the foreground of Y3041B/19 has not yet been constructed in this print).
283 x 227 mm. A very dark print showing a similar scene to Y3041B/21, but from a slightly different viewpoint. Photographer unknown, probably F. Fiorillo.
78 x 78 mm. A view showing Mohammed Fadi on a flight of steps (at Aswan ?). His right hand and left foot have been chopped off.
291 x 242 mm. A view looking along the canal which bypasses the dam towards a set of lockgates. Photographer unknown (George or Fiorillo).
76 x 51 mm.
