This is an original 1918 black and white halftone print of a Coptic Church in a desert in Egypt. It is attributed as being the Anba Bishai, which is in Sohag, but that is likely incorrect. The structure more closely resembles the monastery of Anba Bishoy in the Wadi al Natrun of Egypt. Regardless, the image shows the standard domes of "All Coptic Churches" which is also a misstatement.
