Saqqara photographs of Hasiballah el-Taib

At the January meeting of the Egyptian Archaeology Editorial Board David Jeffreys mentioned photographs of Emery and Quibell which he had been given in Egypt by Salah Hasiballah who has worked with the Society’s Saqqara and Memphis expeditions for many years. Salah is the son of Hasiballah el-Taib who was the photographer of the Antiquities Service at Saqqara, and who also took many of the photographs of Emery’s EES work at the site, particularly at the Sacred Animal Necropolis. 

This photo above shows James Quibell and Hasiballah's father, El-Taib Ahmed with the staff of the Saqqara inspectorate building (the taftish) in 1909.

For more of Hasiballah's photos, including Pierre Lacau, Jean-Philippe Lauer, Bryan Emery, Gamal Mokhtar, Ali el-Khouli, Harry Smith and David Jeffreys, see here:
