Moslems at Prayer

CDV-format albumen print of three Arabs in different positions of Moslem prayer, by Hippolyte Deliť, circa 1865. Imprinted front "H. Deliť & Cie. Phot." and on reverse "Photographie Universelle / H. Deliť & Cie. Caire (Egypte) / succursale de la maison Pierson / Photographe de L'Emperor / Boulevart des Capucines, 3, Paris."   (Ref# ib930.06)

These three authentic-looking middle-easterners appear to be demonstrating three positions adopted in Islamic prayer.
