Brickmaking, Egypt, 1905.Artist: Underwood & Underwood

Brickmaking, Egypt, 1905. We see here modern natives engaged in brickmaking by the same methods that were employed five thousand years ago. The soft mud is being mixed under the feet of a fellah, while another at a table moulds it into bricks. These are taken while still in the moulds and carried to the yard by a third native who gently detaches them from the mould and leaves them to dry in long rows. In spite of the lack of firing they make a very desirable wall. Stereoscopic card. Detail. From a series called Egypt Through the Stereoscope, text by James H Breasted
