Photos: Jerusalem: 1860-1915


With this being Easter weekend, I desired making this posting non-economic and non-political.  The goal rather was a bit of time travelling of sorts.. to see what the Holy city looked like before it was modernized with all the same 'conveniences' and clutter that mucks up every wonderful city and takes away its natural beauty and distinctiveness.

Here are various photos of what Jerusalem looked like 100-150 years ago.
