Nile River flooding the fields, near Al Uqsur, Egypt

Collection Photographer:

Extent:
1 Slide (col.)
Type:
Archival materials
Slides
Color slides
Place:
Africa
Egypt
Date:
1965
Scope and Contents:
"The Nile river flooded every summer, depositing fertile soil on the fields. Its flow is disturbed at several points by cataracts, which are sections of faster-flowing water with many small islands, shallow water, and rocks, forming an obstacle to navigation by boats. While most Egyptians still live in the Nile valley, the construction of the Aswan High Dam (finished in 1970) to provide hydroelectricity ended the summer floods and their renewal of the fertile soil. During his trip to Egypt, Elisofon visited Luxor (Al Uqsur) on the site of ancient Thebes (capital of the New Kingdom). It is noted for having ruins of many temples and burial grounds. When Thebes declined, Luxor remained the more heavily populated part of the ancient city and grew into a modern market town. [The J. P. Getty Fund: Thesaurus of Geographical Names]. This photograph was taken when Eliot Elisofon was on assignment for American Institute of Architects, directing the Egyptian portion of the documentary on Ancient Egypt, March 1965 and September 1965.
