A colorful and informative poster advertisement for 16 and 21-day trips on the Nile, in a "luxuriously-appointed Saloon steamer." Touted as having the "best table and the lowest rates," the Thewfikieh company was primarily aimed at the British market taking wealthy travelers up the Nile past areas of significant historical antiquity. A consequential leg for any young aristocrat looking to take part in the "Grand Tour." Rare.
