Have this envelope in my possession with a postmark from the city of Chanawan. Sofar I have not been able to locate this town. I did find some other envelopes postmarked in this location.
Anyone know under what name it is know nowadays?

Egyptian locations are difficult because there are sometimes several spelling variations.

There was an inauguration trip circa 1893 for the opening of the railway line to Menouf by the Khedive Abbas Hilmi II. ("Khedive" is a ruler of Egypt from 1867 to 1914 governing as a viceroy of the sultan of Turkey).

The route was as follows:

Damanhour is a city in Lower Egypt, and the capital of the Beheira Governorate. It is located 160 km (99 mi) northwest of Cairo, and 70 km (43 mi) E.S.E. of Alexandria, in the middle of the western Nile Delta.

Tantah is located between Cairo and Alexandria: 94 km (58 mi) north of Cairo and 130 km (81 mi) southeast of Alexandria.

Shibin El Kom (Chibin) is a city in Egypt's Nile Delta, and the capital of the Monufia Governorate.

Shanawan (Chanawan) is one of the biggest villages in Monufia Governorate, Egypt. It is in the middle between Shibin El Kom City and Al-Baghor City.

El Hamool (Hamoul)is one of the large port cities located in the Nile Delta

Menuf (Menouf), is a city in Egypt located in the Nile Delta

Hope this is helpful.
