Cabdul Aziz mosque, circa 1880
Revoil and his colleague are in this scene, wearing turbans, located to the left of the camera on the tripod
Location as shown by Google Maps. Given the location of mosque relative to minara, it seems that the above drawing was based on a location to the south east of the minara
Lat and Long: 2°02’13.3″N 45°21’12.3″E
Alas, it is no more, after being damaged by fighting between Al Shabab and OAU forces a few years ago, and then in 2013 demolished by order of the current government, with a promise of being “rebuilt” by Turkey
Here are some photos of inscriptions inside of the adjacent mosque (also damaged during the fighting), taken by Mary Harper before its demolition
Located at the back of the mihrab?
Location unknown…any ideas?
