"The newest thing in freak photgography: sitters posing for their portraits in sphinxes and a mummy-case, in Egypt. Our illustration shows visitors to Egypt being photographed in model sphinxes and a mummy-case, in a desire to possess curious—if somewhat gruesome souvenirs of their wanderings by the Nile. The mummy-case and the sphinxes are of cardboard, and, as may be seen, a hole is left for the face of the sitter."
