Item 02: Walter Bruce Rainsford diary, 1 January 1915-31 December 1915 - Page 208
July 9 Fri.
Was glad to run up against Harold Kershaw of Wahroonga to-day.
Nearly every evening after tea I go for a stroll along the bank of the Nile & through the Gezira Gardens – the latter are very pretty & people of all nationalities can be seen:- Egyptians, Italian, French, Greek, Armenian, Jewish, English etc.
I have no work to do before breakfast so sometimes about 6 a.m. I take a French book along into the gardens which are practically empty at this time of the day – although the working people can be seen starting out for the toil of the day.
