Details:By the latter part of the 19th century, travel to the realms of Egypt and the Holy Land became a popular adventure for European and American tourists. Once reserved for only the very wealthy, improvements in transportation and well-established commercial tours made the trek affordable for even middle-class travelers. A thriving industry in descriptive guidebooks by publishers such as Baedeker and Cook spelled out the information needed to maneuver through the region and experience the most historic and awe-inspiring sites. While the improved technology of photography allowed many travelers to document these journeys with their personal cameras or to purchase inexpensive souvenir prints from the many photography studios in the region, a number of visitors took the opportunity to paint and sketch the historic sites in the same manner that artists had done in earlier times.
