Arabic Cinema Printers

This print shop on Cairo's Oraby Street owned by the Gasour company, was where most Egyptian film posters were printed in the 50s, 60s and 70s in the pre-Photoshop days of stone lithography and lead type. It is closed now but a locked side door covered with graffiti and an entry door sign remain as mementos of years of colorful and prolific output. (photos John Green)
