"Impressions of Alexandria" is a collection of original engravings, 
lithographs and maps that reveal artists and travelers, impressions of 
Alexandria from the 15th to the 19th centuries. It also includes rare 
photographs of the city from the early 19th century to the mid-20th 
century, and highlights the cultural life in the cosmopolitan city as 
portrayed by its prominent writers and artists. The Exhibition is 
therefore a vivid documentation of the “city, half-imagined (yet wholly 
real)”, as Durrell describes it in The Alexandria Quartet.
