Future Feature:
Unlikely Library Archive Contains Rare Pictures from the Galilee

In the near future we hope to publish newly found antique photos and details of a collection of pictures we found in a European archive.  The pictures show another aspect of Jewish life in the Holy Land over 100 years ago.

Meanwhile, here's a tasty morsel from the collection, a picture taken almost 120 years ago.

The caption reads "Sea of Galilee [Scots] Mission Hospital. A peek at a corner of the Male Ward 1894." 

The picture shows care being given to Jewish and Arab patients. The orderly (?) on the right appears to be a religious Jew.
