Tanta was mostly written and pronounced as Tantah until the first half of the 20th century and particularly in French. The Egyptian town is the capital of Gharbia Governorate. The website started on 28 August 2016 and explores Tantah in the Belle Époque of modern Egypt (mid-1800s to mid-1900s), a long forgotten history of a golden era. Tantah was a centre for the cotton-ginning industry at the time.
