Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Hello! I am looking for any kind of information relating to a wacky turn of the century trend, which involved tourists in Egypt posing inside mummy sarcophagi (see photograph). Although the practice seems to have waxed and waned for a period of about 14 years, few of these images are readily available online. I am wondering if anyone knows of any collections (public or private) which hold this kind of image. If it helps, the trend seems to have been popular with German-speaking travellers.
