100 years of Egyptian history in 36 images

Egypt’s history, culture and traditions have long fascinated archaeologists, Egyptologists, and your regular everyday history fanatic.
While we know about the country’s history, the almighty Egyptian pharaohs and their impact on architecture, art, engineering and medicine, researchers and specialists in the field believe they have barely scratched the surface.
Fast forward thousands of years from the Pharaonic era and imagine the country in the 20th century. How was it like and how did everything change so drastically within a century? Egypt was once a glorious country that people truly admired and respected and with events that have occurred over the past few years, poverty, sexism and many other issues, Egypt is now is seen is seen as some sort of prison to most Egyptians in the country.
Looking back at the country’s history, I wonder when, and not if, we’ll ever get back to that; thereby, I have assembled a few pictures dating back to the 1900 to 2015 just to remind Egyptians and non-Egyptians of Egypt’s forgotten glory.
