The City of a Thousand Minarets

More photos of Cairo from 1922. Period photos like this help capture some of the exotic atmosphere of a pulp adventure and are easily re-purposed as handouts or prop photographs. Just click through for the high resolution versions.

First, an open air cafe. The gentleman wearing a fez just screams "NPC".

Second, an 11th century gate near the Red Mosque. It leads to the bazaar, as the merchandise laden animals would suggest.
