 From my visit in 1957.

The area of Northern Sudan around Wadi Halfa which I visited has since been

inundated by waters from the high dam on the Nile.

with its shops

 

local transportation

 

 

The strip of land along the Nile was highly fertile, including many date palms.

 

Water for crops was drawn directly from the Nile

 

 

The method of drawing water has not changed over 1000's of years

 

to irrigate the fertile strip along the Nile

 

Crossing the Nile was done in sailing boats

 

the vessels

 

and with sail

 

trade was in hides

 

and the camels to carry them

 

since outside of this fertile strip was the desert,
 best crossed by camel trains.

 

the cataract on the Nile limited navigation

 

below the cataracts the river boat 
was the link to Assuan in Egypt
