It didn't take long to figure out that chadoufs is French for shadoofs, which is a phonetic spelling from the Arabic. A shadoof is the mechanism pictured, not the people. Basically it's a wooden stand, a rope, and a bucket that's used to move water from one place to another for irrigation. This card was never sent and was published by "The Cairo Postcard Trust-Cairo."
