Hasan Khalid Pasha Abu Al-Huda al-Sayyadi
Reference: HIL/2/1-341
Dates of creation: 1896-1936
Correspondence and reports from Hassan Khaled Pasha Abu Al-Huda, the Egyptian Chief Minister of Trans-Jordan at the time, on the situation in the Levant, the Hijaz and Iraq, and reports on visits and meetings in London, Turkey and Germany. The letters give a glimpse of the political scene in Egypt (HIL2/ 46-48), and the uneasy relation between the Khedive and the rulers of the Hijaz in the 1930s ( HIL/2/125,130-131,137), which manifests in the Khedive’s letter to the British High Commissioner in Transjordan in which he objects to a loan to be given to the rulers of the Hijaz. The file also illustrates the unstable and dangerous situation in Syria at that time (HIL2/107-114). A few key players in history are mentioned in some of the letters, among them Lord Passfield, the British Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1931 (HIL/2/28), Churchill (HIL/2/24-25) and King Faisal (HIL/2/125). A small number of letters demonstrate personal aspects of Hassan Pasha himself, his unshakeable loyalty to the Khedive, his close relationship with his sister and even that he was ambidextrous (HIL2/136). Other letters demonstrate the close and warm relationship between the Khedive and King `Ali of the Hijaz, King Ghazi of Iraq and King Faisal I of Iraq (HIL2/ 174,196); and refer to the Assyrian revolt in Iraq in 1933 just one month before the Simele massacre (HIL2/196-197); discussion of the revolt by the League of Nations; British opposition to any act of mass killing against the Assyrian minority (HIL2/202,203); impact of the Great Depression on the Egyptian economy (HIL2/183,184); Hassan Khaled Pasha to the Khedive regarding a request for a meeting in July 1935 from Sir Cosmo Parkinson and John Chancellor, the former British Higher Commissioner to Palestine and Transjordan (HIL2/ 236); the number of non-Egyptian doctors in Cairo and how Helwan, a neighbourhood just outside Cairo was famous as a place for medical recreation (HIL2/ 179,182); unsigned undated document, probably by Hassan Khaled, containing a Machiavellian plan of 14 points to control the public (HIL2/ 249); Hassan Khaled regarding their mutual belief that Lord Kitchener has played a major role in souring the relationship between the Khedive and the British (HIL2/ 250); the emergence of armed resistance in Palestine, and a specific incident in November 1935 when large quantities of arms and ammunition sent to the Jews in Palestine were discovered on a ship, leading to a country-wide strike (HIL2/ 270); the forming of an armed group by Izz Ad-Din al-Qassam, and public reaction to his murder in December 1935 (HIL2/ 293).
Multiple reports from and to Hassan Khaled show the internal situation in Egypt, including the negative attitude of the public towards the current ruler of Egypt, King Fuad I who is criticised in all major newspapers (HIL2/ 265,267), the internal struggles and conflicts in the royal palace, and the conflicting role of some members of Al-Azhar, the powerful Egyptian religious institution, in supporting or opposing King Fuad and the Khedive (HIL2/ 293); open support for Italy from Egyptian politicians and journalists (HIL/2/316-317); Britain's failure to adopt a containment policy, resulting in increasing hatred between Arabs and Jews (HIL/2/322); `Abbas Hilmi's delight at the resignation of Lloyd George as PM, and his succession by Bonar Law (HIL/2/330); negotiations between Egypt and Britain in 1930 to try to temporarily stop Jewish immigration to Palestine (HIL/2/337).

Photographs of a Hajj, including Mecca, the Hijaz railway and forts.
Album of 166 collated black and white photographs of an official Egyptian delegation pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina Munawara in 1327AH/1909AD by an unknown photographer. At the head of the Egyptian delegation was Prince Ahmed Fouad (later King Fouad). The sequentially arranged photographs start from the departure point at the Suez harbour, and trace the overland desert crossing in Arabia, then the arrival at the port of Jeddah, and a spectacular non-extant view of Mecca before the renovation works in the last quarter of the twentieth century. There are many photographs of non extant architectural buildings in Hijaz, Medina and Mecca; the encampments of the Egyptian delegation on the road, the Holy Carpet carriage mahmal and the meeting of other heads of states including the chief of the Ottoman Empire's pilgrimage delegation and the Emir of Mecca and Hijaz. The trains on which the Egyptian delegation travelled are also extensively documented as well as the small railway station of Ma'an with which the photographer terminates his assignment and album.

Photographs of a Hajj, including Mecca, the Hijaz railway and forts.
Album of 204 collated black and white photographs of an official Egyptian delegation pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina Munawara in 1327AH/1909AD by an unknown photographer. At the head of the Egyptian delegation was Prince Ahmed Fouad (later King Fouad). The sequentially arranged photographs start from the departure point at the Suez harbour, and trace the overland desert crossing in Arabia, then the arrival at the port of Jeddah, and a spectacular non-extant view of Mecca before the renovation works in the last quarter of the twentieth century. There are many photographs of non extant architectural buildings in Hijaz, Medina and Mecca; the encampments of the Egyptian delegation on the road, the Holy Carpet carriage mahmal and the meeting of other heads of states including the chief of the Ottoman Empire's pilgrimage delegation and the Emir of Mecca and Hijaz. The trains on which the Egyptian delegation travelled are also extensively documented as well as the small railway station of Ma'an with which the photographer terminates his assignment and album.
Album HIL/328 contains many duplicates of prints in this album, though often with different exposures or cropping. Cross-references are provided at item level.

HIL/453/1-39   [1880s-1920s]
Language:   Arabic
Album of 39 photographs of Ilhamy School of Fine Arts. The school was established by Emina Hanim Ilhamy and named in memory of her father Ilhamy Pasha, son of `Abbas Hilmi I. The school trained craftsmen who then decorated mainly the Rifai Mosque and the Khedive Tewfik Mausoleum, Emina Hanim’s late husband. The school had its own shop which sold its products in order to offset its expenses. The school was later merged with the Fouad I University (now Cairo). The photographs in the album alternate between exterior views of the School and its shop, and then interior views of the shop and presentations of particular school products or assemblages of products, akin to a sales brochure.

HIL/339/1-146   1897
Album of 146 albumen collated photographs, some with lustre shine, of variable sizes. The photographs are of amateur quality, none of them is signed and many are out of focus. In addition, there are many similar photographs of the same topics which might indicate that the photographer took several shots of the same subject. The logic of the arrangement of the pictures in the album is completely random. No particular sequence of events is followed nor are similar items are put next to each other. Furthermore, in a few cases, photographs on the same page are positioned in opposite orientation. On a few pages at the beginning of the album, traces of pencil lines are found in an attempt to align photographs. The overall orientation of the album is Arabic (i.e. right to left) and some captions written in Arabic are found under the photographs on the first few pages. Those suggest that most, if not all, of the photographs were taken at a location called al-Montaza at Ismailia (not to be confused with the palatial gardens of Montaza at Alexandria founded by `Abbas Hilmi II). However, it is worth noting that the set of 12 photographs dated 14 March 1897 are of superior quality to the rest.
Size: 260 x 385 mm
Binding: The album is bound by a dark brown leather cover with no title on it. The inside front and back covers are covered with a patterned burgundy sheet. On the upper top of the inside front cover is a small label, probably of the Khedivial library, with the following information: No. 2116 Arm 13 Etag. 3. 113.

مطبعة بحرية فطوغرافخانه سى
at the bottom of each photograph as labelled in Old Ottoman script on the mounting cardboard. With the album is a letterhead from Prince Omar Tousoun in 1943 (HIL/336/1) who borrowed the album from Crown Prince Muhammad `Ali Tawfiq (brother of Khedive `Abbas Hilmi) to consult it and clarified, in his attached reply, three comments concerning the Wapur Sultaniya (HIL/336/9), Athar Tewfik (HIL/336/15) and Athar Shawkat (HIL/336/19). It is worth noting that the pages were not numbered and when they got detached from the original binding the original sequence was disrupted. Only the locations of the above photographs can be figured out based on the note sent by Prince Omar Toussun. The drawings were probably made in the 1870s and the photographs taken in the 1930s or 1940s.
Size: 225 x 320 mm
Binding: Brown leather album bound with two screws and impressed with the Ottoman emblem Nisani incrusted vertically on the cover. All inside pages are completely detached and thus not in the original order. The inner cover is of a commercial flower pattern and at the top right corner of the first page is a small label, probably of the Khedivial library, with the following information: No. 2119 Arm 13 Etag. 3. 116. All the photographs measure 145 x 230 mm. The cardboard on which the photographs are glued is preprinted with a double lined frame.
