New Photos Added to the "Gates of Jerusalem" Essays
Damascus, Golden, Lions Gates & a Preview of Jaffa Gate

Jaffa Gate (circa 1890) -- a preview of a future feature. Before
the emperor of Germany arrived in 1898, the Turks razed the
shops, filled the moat to the right and built a road
 so he could ride into the Old City in his carriage.
Israel Daily Picture uncovered "new old" pictures of the gates of Jerusalem's Old City, dating back to the 1890s. 

Incredibly, the pictures were produced in color in an early color process.

We also present a preview of a future feature on Jaffa Gate.

  1. Your vast collection of historic images and remarkable trace of our Israel heritage is bringing so much treasures in my rather young shipping household goods business in this country. Hats off!
