Egyptian Streets, شوارع مصر

A great insight in what’s going on in Egypt is to be found on the website Egyptian Streets. From their Facebookpage today I have borrowed this photo and statement:

These are not the streets of Paris, London, or New York. This is an image from 1941 at Emad El Dine street in Cairo.

During this bygone era, women were not afraid to walk in the streets. Garbage did not form mountains on every corner. Grey, uniformed apartment blocks and thick smog did not obscure the sun’s light.

A bygone era indeed.”

  1. And how were the ordinary people of Egypt, who could not afford to walk in the fashionable Cairo streets, getting along in those bygone days of King Farouk and British colonialism?
