N.D. Photo. Item #38002
No Date (1940s? ) . 18x13”. Medium black and white photo. This photo shows a funeral near the grave of H. N. Bialik and Ahad Ha-Am, thus dating it to post-1934. The cemetery was founded in 1902 on a tract of unoccupied land in Jaffa, six years before the founding of Ahuzat Bayit, the first neighborhood of Tel Aviv. Buried there are the city's founders, early residents, and cultural and historical figures, including Moshe Sharett, the second Prime Minister of Israel. Today, only persons holding plots purchased long ago and a small number willing to pay many thousands of dollars are buried there. The eastern section is the oldest and includes the tombs of the early leaders in Tel Aviv, and Jews from Jaffa. The remains of well-known persons may be found in the southwest corner. Some creases. Overall Good Condition. (ZION-14-56).
