Image showing John Garstang standing upon what appears to be a support for the 'aerial railway', a system of pulleys for moving debris around excavation sites used during John Garstang's excavations from 1911. Two other men standing below. Appears to have been taken in Egypt rather than near east (possibly Meroë, Sudan).
