Object Details:
1 photograph : albumen ; 16 x 9.8 cm ( 6.25 x 4 in).
Photographer's signature at lower right; attached description: "The Mosque of Sultan Barkook is one of the finest of the Cairene buildings. It contains the tomb of his wife and daughter, Fatima, the sultan himself lying among the Mameluke Kings. The courses of red and white stone are here very striking ; but the tomb has a special interest as the memorial of one who twice, A.D. 1393-94, defeated Timour and his Tartars in the Syrian plains."
Domed mosque with minarets and buildings with red and white stripes
