Despite the somewhat 'tongue in cheek' nature of that (my) particular paragraph in the post, I acknowledge such generous, perhaps magnanimous, offer . I accept your comment at face value as "fair dinkum" or genuine.
I only wish I possessed the knowledge, sphere of influence and general wherewithal to facilitate such .

I would be surprised , nay flabbergasted, if some form of photographic catalogue (perhaps including other marks such as Djedefre's boat pit, Abu sir etc) does not exist somewhere behind closed doors in academia or held by Egyptian authorities. Hopefully!?
As you go on to highlight in later post the human impact post air-tight(ish) seal and vandalism over the last 180 years can only mean that the extant remains will further deteriorate, even if only via influx of tourists into the general body of G1.
