Regarding the Kit Kat Lido tokens and the location of that lido....

I researched these some time ago... you can see the info somewhere on this page Africa - Tokens of Egypt

There I state...

>>>>>>
The “Kit Kat Lido”, as far as I can tell, must just have been a part of the “Kit Kat Club” establishment.
>>>>>>

and later...

>>>>>>
The Kit Kat Club was located a little north from where Sudan Street reaches the main road along the west bank of the river Nile. That large junction is called Kit Kat Square and is situated at the southern-most corner of Kit Kat suburb, within Cairo’s Imbaba district. Both suburb and square take their name from the old club. Kit Kat’s mosque, “Khalid ibn al-Walid Mosque”, stands exactly on the old site of the club.
>>>>>>

So do you believe/know of the club and the lido having been in different locations ?

Thanks Mr Paul Baker


I found three interesting pages in the encyclopedia on this topic:

Jetons des colonies – Le Caire (Egypte) – Kit Kat Lido 
https://wikicollection.fr/?p=56420

Jetons des colonies – Le Caire (Egypte) – Ghesireh palace casino
https://wikicollection.fr/?p=56158

Jetons des colonies – Le Caire (Egypte) – Gezira sporting club
https://wikicollection.fr/?p=55904

It shows various tokens for this island that I have not seen before.
