'Lady Strangford's Hospital in Arab's House - Cairo - Dr Liviking. Egyptians wounded at Tel-el-Kebir.' Photograph of wounded soldiers receiving treatment in hospital. Lady Emily Anne Strangford, widow of the 8th Viscount Strangford, was a philanthropist, author and nursing reformer. The photograph is from an album entitled 'Algiers Egypt &c 1882-3' which belonged to Brigadier General Herbert Conyers Surtees (1858-1933), antiquarian and MP for Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. It is a curious mixture of photographs of North African tourist subjects and views of Egyptian battlefields.
