Aswan, EGYPT - from Elephantine Island, Nile - REAL PHOTO : Elephantine is an island on the Nile, forming part of the city of Aswan in southern Egypt. There are archaeological sites on the island. Elephantine island is 1,200 meters (3,900 ft.) from north to south, and is 400 meters (1,300 ft.) across at its widest point. The layout of this and other nearby islands in Aswan can be seen from west bank hillsides along the Nile. The island is located just downstream of the First Cataract, at the southern border of Upper Egypt with Lower Nubia. This region above is referred to as Upper Egypt because it is further up the Nile. The island may have received its name after its shape, which in aerial views is similar to that of an elephant tusk, or from the rounded rocks along the banks resembling elephants. This Real Photo postcard is in good condition. Mac Gillivrays Photo Stores, Assuan.
