Canal suburbs

Port Fuad, Egypt

Strangely, Port Fuad is not on most travellers itinerary visiting the Suez Canal. It lies across the canal from Port Said, and was laid out to be a suburb and still that is very much what it is.
But Port Fuad has the very best examples of canal architecture, especially since so much of Port Said's is in bad repair.
Founded in 1927, most of Port Fuad's buildings belong to the 1930's, built in Art Deco style.
