The photographs depict scenic views of Jerusalem and its environs, and of other cities in the Land of Israel, Jews in traditional dress and more. About half of them depict the Arabs of the Land of Israel in their daily lives, shepherding sheep, in processions, near the Islamic holy sites, on scenic backgrounds and more. Below each photograph is a printed description of the photographed site, which appears on the rear side in six languages. A pleasant designated cardboard box.
