Algiers Observatory.

The Algiers Observatory was built in the late nineteenth century in the Algiers suburb of Bouzaréah. It participated in the Astrographic Catalogue project, taking the zone between -2 and +4 degrees to expose 1,260 plates between the years 1891 and 1911. At the tail end of that time, the director of the installation was François Gonnessiat.
