Photos for this book were selected from the Library of Congress Eric and Edith Matson Photograph Collection, which contains over 23,000 glass and film negatives, transparencies, and photographic prints created by the American Colony Photo Department and its successor, the Matson Photo Service. The collection transferred to the Library of Congress between 1966 and 1981, through a series of gifts made by Eric Matson and his beneficiary. Since then the images have been digitized for archival preservation by The Library of Congress. Each photograph’s description and the brief notes on Eric Matson are based upon the Library of Congress text.

The photographs in the collection were taken between 1898 and 1946, a time period that spans the final years of the Ottoman Empire, the creation of the British Mandate of Palestine by the League of Nations, large-scale Jewish immigration to Palestine under the auspices of the World Zionist Federation, and the rise of a popular movement for Palestinian independence.

Wonderful book. Wish I had more like it! Thank you so much.

PS: If you can find any Palestine outline pendants (cloisonne-type would be cool), and the right of return key (or back of a little boy - sometimes shown holding a key behind his back) as a necklace pendant, I'd buy them in an instant. Thank you.
