This is an original 1918 black and white halftone print of the Egyptian Village of Keneh (Qena). The caption states that it is where "the drinking vessels are made." It also says the village was mostly Coptic Christians, but today the village is largely Muslim.

Photography is attributed to P. Dittrich, but the signature clearly shows J. P. (Johannes Pascal) Sebah.
