Sphinx;  CMC PCD 2001-303-029

Egyptian Civilization Architecture The sphinx differs from other

Khaefre's pyramid and Sphinx--Khaefre, Khufu's son, built beside his father's pyramid. His is the smaller pyramid, but as it is built on higher ground, and has a slightly steeper angle, it appears the larger. Today Khaefre's complex is the most complete of the Giza three, while his is the only pyramid to retain some of its upper casing stones. The Great Sphinx crouches beside Khaefre's Valley Temple.

The Reebie Storage and Moving Company was founded in 1880 by William Reebie who was later joined by his brother John.  It still operates out of the building to this day, and they continue to use the head of the Sphinx in their logo.  I think that their early advertising slogan sums up the story of the Reebie building pretty well: “If old King Tut were alive today he’d store his things the Reebie way!” ( Historically accurate designs.)
