Egypt: Rare Visit

Egyptian blogger egYptianist posts a rare find in an Egyptian newspaper, dating back to 1913, which reads: “Egyptian Delta Railways Ltd. Helwan Line. Visit to the Israelite Cemetery. We are honored to announce to the public that concerning the visit to the Israelite Cemetery in Bassatine on Friday, October 13, 1913, it has been decided that special trains will leave Bab El Louk heading directly to Bassatine. These trains will not stop at the Torah Station. They are only to be used by passengers going from Bab el Louk directly to Bassatine, non-stop.”
