Thebes, The Broken Obelisk, Karnak 1857

More about this scene


Caption for Thebes, The Broken Obelisk C1857: The Late 19th to the Early 20th Century Forget six counties overhung with smoke Forget the snorting steam and piston stroke, Forget the spreading of the hideous town; Think rather of the pack-horse on the down, And dream of London, small, and white and clean, The clear Thames bordered by its gardens green.

An extract from North London Photographic Memories.
