Back in the late 19th century, the Zangaki brothers were Greek photographers who lived in Egypt and sold their pictures as souvenirs for tourists — similar to present day, almost 150 years later. These beautiful pictures were taken between the 1870s to the 1890s and are distributed between museums all over the world. For more Zangaki photos, including of the Bicharin people who lived in southern Egypt and Sudan, check out this Mashable article here.
