The Streets of Cairo: Daily life in a street near the Báb El-Khark.

A street near the Báb El-KharkCairo. Hay, Robert. lithographed by J.C.Bourne after Hay, O.B.Carter & C.Laver A street near the Báb El-KharkCairo. "A Street in Cairo near the Báb El- KHARK." On stone by J.C. Bourne from a Drawing by O.B.Carter Archt. Printed by C. Hullmandel. London Tilt and Bogue 1840
Tinted lithograph of a street near the Báb El- KHARK Cairo from Robert Hay's "Illustrations of Cairo..."
The view shows a merchant in the foreground conducting business whilst seated on the mastaba in front of his shop with a group of veiled ladies upon donkeys led by a harem attendant. Hay comments that " since these drawings were made the mastabas have in many parts been pulled down."
The plates of the streets within Cairo are often the only records of the city at that time, as many of the buildings were demolished in the succeeding years.
Robert Hay much less famous than his fellow countryman and contemporary David Roberts nevertheless made the greater contribution to Egyptian Archaeology with his two expeditions of 1824-8 & 1829-34. Bright and clean; lithographers pinholes to corners of image, as usual.
