A photo of a Couple on camels in front of the Sphinx and pyramid of Jizah (sic), Egypt circa 1900
My mpggf, Haiman Kopelman was touring Egypt when WW1 broke out. All outgoing ships were helping in the war effort, though Egypt was not yet involved. Thus, ggf was stuck in Egypt for 9 months. He is pictured here on a camel in front of the Sphynx. I'm told that the small group of Americans tourists in Egypt banded together during this time. My ggf, a Lithuanian Jewish immigrant to the US supposedly struck up a great friendship with the man pictured on the donkey.

Have not been able to find any information on him except two pictures. I would like to find out more about early Navy personel in this area. It is believed that he died shortly after this picture was taken.
