Medinet Habu, Gallery of the Temple of Ramesses III (1849 photo)

Gallery of the Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu (Du Camp, 1852, pl.52 ).

This image by du Camp shows a row of huge columns with reliefs in the forecourt of the Temple of Ramesses III. The brief caption  reads "Medinet Habou, gallery of the Palace of Ramses Meiamoun."  

The unidentified figure with the white hat, pointing with his cane at a column, may possibly be the writer Gustave Flaubert, who accompanied du Camp on the expedition though Egypt and Nubia.
