Very good condition.
Adelphoi Zangaki (Brothers Zangaki) were two brothers of Greek origin, who were active as photographers in Egypt and Algeria, from the 1860s through to the 1890s and who specialized in photographing ancient monuments and scenes of everyday life, producing prints for the tourist trade. They were amongst the first commercial photographers to produce large scale images of Egypt.
It is acknowledged that the Zangaki brothers "produced some of the finest images of late Victorian Egypt. Their photographs of late 19th century Egypt, though produced for sale to the flourishing European tourist trade to Egypt, are highly prized by historians and collectors for their insights into life at the time.
