The following photographs are scans from black and white negatives and color slides.  It is an ongoing project from approximately 1000 negatives and slides taken in Egypt from 1952 to 1956.  A series of 8 mm film will be added as well.  Negatives were scanned at a resolution of 4000 pixels/inch or 1570 pixels/cm and then reduced for the website.  To organize the photos they are broken down in broad categories.  To help identify some of the photos smaller portions of the photo have been enlarged.  The photos were taken during family outings from our home in Heliopolis.
