I have always liked this WWII photo of my dad which I remember him saying was taken in 'Alex'. It always seemed to me it was from a lost time and place but recently I took note of the physical features contained within it and set about examining the layout of Alexandria on Google Earth. Within a remarkably short space of time I was able to come up with this: It was a strange feeling to realise it's all still there - and in colour!!! - could be my next holiday destination! The wonders of Google Earth! Tom.
