What's Inside? Updated Table of Contents by Subject - Israel

What's Inside?
Updated Table of Contents by Subject

The Library of Congress' photo collection of 22,000 pictures from the century-old American Colony photo department in the Holy Land is a credit to the Library, the curators, the restorers, and, of course, the members of the American Colony, themselves.  
Our recent postings included evidence that these Christian utopians were "Zionists" well before Theodore Herzl, rejoicing in the return of Jews to Eretz Yisrael.  The choice of photo subjects was remarkably "Jewish-friendly," a fact absent from other studies of the Colony's photos. 

We also published newly-found pictures from a Scottish university's medical archives where we unexpectedly found photographs of the citizens of Tiberias.

We present this Table of Contents of more than 290 essays and hundreds of pictures to assist you in viewing this incredible historical treasure.
