I am trying to find any personal details about a famous French
photographer who documented the construction of the Suez Canal between
1859-1869. He lived in Port Said, Egypt where he had a studio. He was not
Jewish but may have had some contact with Jews who settled there. The
only data one may bump into,repeatedly, is that he was active in Port
Said between 1860-1890.
Although he produced many albums which are in many respected collections
and regularly auctioned no clue who he was,when he died,where was he
buried,any relatives? May be some of the members of the group may help.
Please respond privately.
