1 photograph
25 x 20 cm ( 9.875 x 7.875 in).
A street scene. Donkeys, priests and other people enter a village. Buildings on the left and right sides of the road are raised above the ground and are built of stone with wooden railings.
The photograph is in a book with a typed description in French and English. The French description: "La route de Jérusalem à Jaffa, après avoir traversé le torrent sur un pont moderne, passe près du village de Kolonieh qui est sur la pente de la montagne. On n'aperçoit ici que les maisons d'auberge construites sur la route. Au fond, à droîte, sont les ruines d'une construction en gros blocs équarris. Les pierres d'angle seules sont d'un travail plus soigné. Plusieurs auteurs ont voulu voir là un reste de construction romaine, mais l'examen du travail révèle la main des ouvriers latins de l'époque des Croisades: les signes lapidaires, la taille en diagonale et l'ensemble de l'oeuvre, tout rappelle les travaux analogues de Koubeibé, d'Abougoch, etc. Kolonieh répond à une localité biblique du nom de Qoulon, citée dans Josué." The English translation: "The road from Jerusalem to Jaffa, after crossing the torrent by a modern bridge, passes close by the village of Kolonieh, which stands on the mountain slope. We only see the way side inns. Down below, to the right, are the ruins of some great building, great rough blocks, only the corner-stones show signs of more careful workmanship. Some authors have looked upon this as the remains of a Roman building, but a closer examination shows the workmanship of the Latins at the time of the Crusades. The manner of cutting, the shape of the blocks and the general look of the work, all resemble similar structures at Koubeibe, Abougoch, etc. Kolonieh is mentioned in the book of Joshua under the name of Holon." The initials "B+P" are printed at the bottom left corner.
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
