Old films of Egypt...

Post by LivinginLuxor »

I found these films more or less by accident when browsing for Luxor in YouTube. The first one is of Egypt in 1934, but much of it is around Luxor.
Hope you like them.

I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

Fascinating Stan, especially loved the one showing the tombs.

Stan those old films are wonderful. I have just wasted about an hour watching them all, but it was well worth it. Thanks for posting them.
