The nitrate negatives of the so-called "Giza photographs" were presented by the Petrie Museum of Archaeology in 1985, along with the "Italian Museums Photographs" (see Petrie MSS 3.3). Modern 35mm negatives were created from the nitrate negatives and the nitrate negatives were subsequently deaccessioned.
