Photographer's Note

On the Nile River island of Zamalek in Central Cairo, is the Police Officer's club complex. I had spotted it from the Cairo Tower Observation deck on the southern end of the island. I had no idea what it was and investigated, but was politely asked not to enter the grounds. Turns out it was the Police Officer's Club! The gardens, fountains and neoclassical buildings had piqued my interest. To the far right is part of the Helwan University Faculty of Physical Education for Girls, most of it hidden behind the pink buildings reaching to the Banquet Hall at far left. The section seen here suffered a serious fire in March 2013, probably why security was so tight. In the bg below is the Cairo Tower.

I might load an aerial view from the Tower as a workshop.
