Turkey-2 - still image

This 1873 studio portrait of models wearing the traditional clothing of Syria, in the Ottoman Empire, pictures a Jewish couple of that time and place. The original appears in a book where it is captioned both in French and Ottoman Turkish as "Syria: Jerusalem: Figure 1: A Jewish man of Jerusalem; Figure 2: A Jewish woman of Jerusalem."
