A sepia toned silver print of a Bedouin shepherd with his flock grazing on sparsely covered ground below a hill. In the lower right corner is the blind stamp, “American Colony/Jerusalem.” The original dates from around 1920 and this would appear to be a print of roughly that age. The Number 161 is stamped on the back. The photograph is 8 ¼ x 11 ¼ inches includes a thin margin.
Condition: excellent. There are a few minor creases in the interior of the image, probably from being rolled up at one time, It is not laid down.
The American Colony Jerusalem has a fascinating history from its founding in the late 19th century. Its photography division produced a large number of photographs of the region around Jerusalem.
