Many of the photographs are large-format prints (on average 220 × 280 mm); apart from a little foxing to some of the mounts, the album and its contents are in excellent condition. The most appealing images are the dozen of Ceylon; 11 of them carry the blindstamp of the Colombo studio of William Skeen in the bottom right corner. Many of the 34 photographs of Egypt and the Suez Canal are also impressive; 26 are credited in the negative to Zangaki (the Zangaki Brothers). The 15 of Malta, all by Agius, are generally more routine, but they include two uncut sheets, each containing six occupational cartes de visite. Most of the 29 English views are smaller in format (110 × 180 mm), and rather mundane by comparison.
