Approach to the Fortress of Ibrim, Nubia.
London, Published F. G. Moon, 20 Threadneedle Street, May 1st, 1847.
Tinted lithograph, printed area 330 x 485mm.
Intrepid European travellers in the 19th century would have discovered that this fortress was as far south as their journey on the Nile would take them. One interpretation of this tranqil view is that the faluka rests before returning north.
