-Giza Museum. -Handwritten by W. M. Flinders Petrie. -'Photographs from the Ghizeh Museum' -'This museum is not only shamefully perilous, in view of a fire occurring, but it is also altogether unsuitable for a collection. There is but one hall where any top light can be obtained for sculpture; and everywhere else side lights, often of most inappropriate kinds, make it difficult to see sculptures, & almost hopeless to photograph them. The insecurity of the cases makes it needful to keep them screwed up & pad locked, so that it is very troublesome to open any case. -These photographs are very far from being what they should be; but their defects are largely due to the miserable light, & the need of frequently photographing through glass cases. -I have to thank the curator, Brugsch Bey, for granting me permission to photograph whatever I desired. These were done in the course of three days.'
