Beautiful and rare photography representing four boats landing English troops in Port Said, Egypt.
Free print not laminated in very good condition, good black shades in sepia tones and good level of contrast, very good level of details, without tears, light fold in the bottom left-hand corner without gravity.
Captioned at the bottom in the negative.
Gabriel Lékégian was of Armenian origin, born in the late 1850s in the Ottoman Empire. At first, his passion pushed him towards painting, but he clearly showed talent for art photography, as evidenced by this designation ‘Photog. Artistique G.Lékégian & Co’, affixed to the albumen photographs. He was invited to international exhibitions, where the whole profession paid him a tribute: a gold medal in Paris in 1892, a prize in Chicago in 1893...
The Zangaki brothers were two Greek photographers, active circa 1870-1875 and 1880-1899. They specialised in historical scenes and ancient Egypt. They occasionally worked with Hippolyte Arnoux, a French photographer who lived in Port-Said.
