Description: This map illustrates the route of the Suez Canal through Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula. The manmade canal opened in 1869 and is composed of two parts, separated by the Great Bitter Lake. This map shows the canal route from Port Said on the Tanitic Mouth of the Nile Delta to Port Ibrahim on the Gulf of Suez in the Red Sea. The highest point of the route on the isthmus, 52 feet above sea level, is shown just north of the city of Ismailiya. The railroad connecting Suez and Ismailiya to the Nile Delta and Cairo is shown, as well as the abandoned railway, various caravan routes, and forts.
