Mount Serbal, from the Wadee Feyran, 1860

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y30214C/3
Scope and Contents 227 x 159 mm. A view from the north looking towards the rocky summit of Mount Serbal, with a valley floor and a gnarled tree which, according to Frith 'gives such great vigour to the picture' in the foreground. He continues, in his commentary: 'Nature is here stripped of the beautiful colours and forms that elsewhere vary her surface, and reduced to the above conditions of her older state. This naked simplicity, apart from the effect of lofty mountains and majestic forms, and of the pure...

Port Said, Suez, and Aden [i.e. Adan] 1909, 1909

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3011B(LS)/88-133
Scope and Contents From the Fonds: The collection was originally housed in seven boxes, four of which were specially made with individual slots for slides. These were numbered 3, 6, 10 and 11 and the remaining boxes were unnumbered. Presumably these formed part of a larger collection, but nothing is known of the original owner or the fate of any other boxes. For conservation reasons, the collection has since been re-boxed. The captions given are normally those which appear on the slides themselves. They have been used as...

The Convent of Sinai and Plain of Er-Raha, 1860

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y30214C/4
Scope and Contents 225 x 159 mm. A view looking over a harsh and rocky valley landscape. Frith comments: 'In the view we look down the valley in which the convent stands towards the Plain of Er-Raha. The scene is strangely desolate. In the immediate foreground, up to the convent walls, stretches an arid tract strewn with broken fragments of rock, some of which are of vast size, as we see by comparing them with the little encampment in front. The fortress-like convent rises finely in the distance, and...

The summit of Gebel Moosa, Sinai, 1860

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y30214C/7
Scope and Contents 219 x 156 mm. A view looking towards the summit of Gebel Moosa from a plateau on lower ground. Frith comments: 'The view is taken from the high irregular plateau from which rises the loftiest summit ... The perpendicular forms of the granite of the rounded height, utterly bared by the storms, rise grandly from the base, covered, like the lower region in the foreground, with washed-down fragments. Immediately before us is a deserted tract, among the loose stones of which grow prickly...

The Wadee El-Mukattab, Sinai, 1860

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y30214C/5
Scope and Contents 227 x 161 mm. Frith comments:'This view represents a charismatic portion of the Wadee El-Mukattab. To the left is seen the entrance of one of the natural caves in which the district abounds, the supposed dwellings of the ancient Horim. The sharp forms of the rock, the deep shade within, and the graduations of the lighter surface, with its strange Sinaitic inscriptions, are beautifullu rendered. Before the rock a group of thorny desert-shrubs grow from the sand ... In the distance is the...
