(Daily Mail) An album of pictures capturing a round-the-world trip more than 120 years ago has been brought to life with colour.
Images taken by American photographer William Henry Jackson between 1894 and 1896 show the Sphinx at Giza in Egypt, an Emperor's Palace in China, and the Canal de la Viga in Mexico City.
Jackson was asked to accompany the World Transport Commission on a trip to document and photograph scenery from around the globe.
Departing from New York in September 1894, the group visited more than 40 countries across Europe, Africa, the Far East, South and Central America and the Middle East.
His photos captured a railway station in India, Japanese men manning a train in Japan and a colourful street scene from 1890s Hong Kong.
Jackson was a well-respected painter and photographer throughout the 1870s, 80s and 90s in America. He gained a name for himself photographing the American West, before being asked in 1870 to join the American geological survey of Yellowstone National Park, producing some of the first ever images of its stunning scenery.
Following his death in 1942 at the age of 99, Mount Jackson in Yellowstone was named in his honour.
