Photos from astride a camel: Mandate-era Israel

Tel Aviv beach is full of swimmers, there is no parking in Allenby Street and the winged lion is still on top of a Jerusalem building; and yet, something has changed since then. Traveling back in time through the photographs of a British army officer, second and last part

Last peek to an old photo album that was founded 20 years ago at a collectors’ market in England. The pictures were taken by a British intelligence officer on his way to Israel and during his service here in a camel-riding unit of the British army. The first series of the collection is presented here, including the captions which adorned the original photos.
