Hercules Brabazon Brabazon, Cairo Street Scene
The wonderfully named Hercules Brabazon Brabazon (1821 - 1906) was an independently wealthy amateur artist who resisted exhibiting his work until he was in his 70s. He is reported to have hailed taxis in London (particulrly on cold winter days) telling the dirver to 'take him to Egypt' - meaning in fact the boat train. This was presumably executed on one such trip.
