In my Grandfather’s diary entry on Thursday 29 April 1943, when we was on leave in Alexandria, he wrote of visiting Ras el-Tin Palace in Alexandria. This photo was possibly taken on this day. The caption to the photo is what he had written on the back of the photo.
Following info taken from Wikipedia –
” Ras el-Tin Palace, (Arabic: قصر رأس التين Qaṣr Ra’s al-Tīn, literally, “Cape Fig Palace”), is a palace on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea in Alexandria, Egypt. It is one of the official residences for a serving President of Egypt. Under the Muhammad Ali Dynasty of Egypt and Sudan, it was a royal palace. Ras el-Tin Palace is the oldest royal Egyptian palace still in use. “
