Images of Cairo’s streets were popular with tourists and photographers, especially around the bazaar, Khan al-Khalili. The V&A bought many of these photographs a century ago as a record of Cairo’s architecture and they still have relevance for conservation and restoration work today. They are also appreciated for the way they captured the life of the city.
