The album compiled by one Abdu Rabbih
al-Wahhāb contains photographs of the Maghreb region of North Africa. The first half
features views of Algeria and Tunisia, while the second half is devoted to portraits of a
variety of North African peoples. These are mainly studio portraits of prostitutes and
dancers from various ethnic groups, although some male types and dignitaries such as the
Agha and Califa of Ouargla, are included.
The title page lists a person known as Abdu Rabbih al-Wahhāb as the "author" of the album.
This may be a pseudonym or fictitious name.
