The Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem's Old City, 100 Years Ago
Closed for the Sabbath
The caption on the Library of Congress picture reads,
"Closed shops of the Jewish Quarter on the Jewish Sabbath, Jerusalem."
The picture was published in March 1900.
Jewish Quarter street
But the Jewish Quarter was no quiet, sleepy residential area for old rabbis and talmudic seminaries.
The second picture shows a busy and lively "Street in the Jewish Quarter" and was taken on a week day somewhere between 1900 and 1920.
