Life at Giza, Cairo, Egypt – 1952
Life at Giza near Cairo Egypt has not changed much in decades. At the time these pictures were taken in 1952, the Pyramids at Giza were already a well known tourist attractions around the world. But there is another side to the Pyramids, the day to day life of the people who live in the shadows of history.
The tour guides at the Pyramids had quite the racket going on here. A fence keeps the riffraff out. No doubt the camel rides are just out of the frame of this picture here. They probably pre-dated the “Made in China” trinket revolution that infests tourist sites around the world these days.
