Great Sphinx, Egypt. Photograph by Donald McLeish, 1921
In 1928 National Geographic Editor Gilbert H. Grosvenor wanted “outdated” photographs of the Great Sphinx of Giza—images made prior to excavation—removed from the archive. This 1921 photo by Donald McLeish survived and has been in the image collection for over 90 years.
