Biskra, Algeria - The Royal Hotel (circa 1910s): A Glimpse into the Past of Colonial North Africa This evocative photograph captures the grandeur of the Royal Hotel in Biskra, Algeria, during the early 1900s. The image transports us back in time to an era of exotic travel and adventure, as European tourists flocked to the North African coast for the healing properties of the local geysers and the allure of the Saharan desert. The Royal Hotel, with its distinctive Moorish architecture, stands proudly amidst the arid landscape, offering a luxurious retreat for weary travelers. The palatial building, adorned with intricate tilework and ornate arches, exudes an air of opulence and sophistication. In the foreground, a line of camels, their humps laden with supplies, adds to the sense of adventure and exploration. The tranquil oasis, with its lush palm trees and clear blue waters, contrasts sharply with the surrounding desert, creating a breathtaking and otherworldly scene. Biskra, located in the northern part of Algeria, was a popular destination for European visitors seeking relief from the harsh European winters. The town's unique geothermal springs, known for their therapeutic properties, drew travelers from all corners of the continent. This photograph is a testament to the rich history and cultural exchange that took place between Europe and North Africa during the colonial era. It invites us to imagine the stories of the people who once passed through the Royal Hotel, and the adventures they experienced in this enchanting corner of the world.
