Thebes : Koorneh, or Goorna, South-east view of the Temple [Graphic]
Object Details:
1 photograph : albumen ; 20.5 x 15 cm ( 8.125 x 6 in).
Photographer's signature at lower left corner; attached description: "South-east view of the Temple of Ammon at Koorneh. It was built in the 14th century by Rameses II and his father. The columns stand at uneven intervals, and are curious in form, since the stems which combine to form the shaft are carried only half-way up, but reappear in the capital."
