Fascinating Hand-Colored Street Photographs of 1910 Cairo

Egypt's historic capital may hardly be a top vacation spot for many travelers today, but we can always look back at its early days. Read on to take a trip down the streets of 1910 Cairo through some interesting colorized photographs!

Most of what we know about Cairo, Egypt’s capital and one of the most historic cities in the world, lies in its association with Ancient Egypt but perhaps not much about life in the more recent centuries. This is why the gallery of colorized photographs below, masterfully colored by hand, offers us a fascinating glimpse at what life was like in the city around 1910.

What do you think of these vintage, hand-colored photos of Cairo from circa 1910? Share your thoughts with us and leave a comment below!
