It was a massive hub for river travel in the early 20th century and boasted a population some say up to 20 thousand, now it&#39;s a fraction of that size. Once beautiful buildings and homes that are still standing are now in disrepair, and the poverty level has sky rocketed. An industrial exodus and fall out from the civil rights movement are mostly to blame for the state of Cairo today.
