Notes on the Geography of Egypt: Paris on the Nile: Photo 3
One of the main streets east from the museum is Qasr el Nil, which soon leads to Talat Harb Square, originally Midan Suliman Pasha. Whatever name you use, it's an important circle, with six streets radiating from it. Suliman, by the way, died in 1860. He was a Frenchman who Europeanized the Egyptian army. Harb was a banker of nationalist persuasions. The building shown here housed the Royal Society of Political Economy, Statistics, and Legislation.
