Egypt Lantern Slides

The Brooklyn Museum has been uploading their lantern slide collection in high resolution to flickr; the latest batch is from Egypt, taken in 1900.

I have no particular obsession with Egyptology, but these photos are gorgeous.  Kudos to the Brooklyn Museum for sharing them.

  2. Beautiful photos indeed! These photographs show a connection between the past and the present that makes it unavoidable to see this photographs as fine works of art.
