Inscription reads: Cairo, January 7, 1831.
View from the Al Azhar Park looking southwest. The tower and dome of the Aqsunqur Mosque can be seen at the centre of the image. The Mosque of Muhammad Ali which today stands on the top of the hill on the left of the image was built between 1830 and 1848 and therefore cannot be seen in this depiction of the City.
