Palestine (page 1)

Stereoviews of Palestine (The Holy Land) proved wildly popular from the 1850s views of Francis Frith and others, right up to the 1930s views by Keystone. Our pages of Palestine views are sorted into publishers. We start with the views of companies whose views were published in the 1890s by Underwood and who were subsequently taken over by them - notably Jarvis, Bierstadt and Strohmeyer. These date from the 1890s. There are THREE pages of Palestine views - links to the following pages at the bottom.
