An uncommon 1882 bird's-eye view map of Cairo, Egypt. This view was issued as a supplement to the 23rd, September, 1882 issue of The Graphic. The view presets Cairo looking north east from somewhere high above the Treat Pyramids of Giza, which feature prominently in the foreground. Centered on the Nile, the full view covers from Abukebir to the Pyramids of Giza and from Subt ed Dak to the Plain of Muggreh. Numerous important sites are evident from the image, including the Citadel, Old Cairo, Heliopolis, and Bulak. Ismailia and the Suez Canal is visible in the distance.
This map view was issued by The Graphic to capatiolize on popular British interest in the Anglo-Egyptian War. The Anglo-Egyptian War occurred in 1882 between Egyptian and Sudanese forces under Ahmed ‘Urabi and the United Kingdom. It ended a nationalist uprising against the Khedive Tewfik Pasha and vastly expanded British influence over the country, at the expense of the French. This began an extended period of Biritsh influence in Egypt, including occupation by British troops, until the Anglo–Egyptian Treaty of 1922 and Anglo-Egyptian treaty of 1936 returned gradual control to the people of Egypt.
