About Edouard Louis Joseph Empain
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_Empain



And about Heliopolis
http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/baronspalace.htm
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2201662/Baron-Empain-Palace-A-Belgian-millionaire-Egyptian-palace-shrouded-superstition.html


And original photographs
http://www.theegyptianchronicles.com/History/Heliopolis.html


And perhaps it will be restored if you can believe the Egyptian embassador in Belgium

And a documentary about Heliopolis with an interview with Baron Empain (sadly only in French)





And as an addendum: the story of the kidnapping of Baron Empain

Kind regards, Paul.
