A Picture a Day -- Building Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 by the Jewish community of Jaffa who built the new town on nearby sand dunes along the coast.  These photos are believed to have been taken in the 1920s.

  1. this is very cool, and hopefully takes you less time than it looks like it should. You overdeliver - not "a" picture a day, but a whole story with a few! I am signing up!
