corridor with a view


June 1926, Algeria
The Bay of Algiers
design: Brouty

These arches with a distinctive shape are above capitals – they look oriental. I wonder if the original location of this picture has roots from Roman or Islamic architecture… could be Phoenician influence? The history of Algiers is a fascinating and brutal miniature of the Mediterranean Sea through a long period.
