A very fine hand-made relief map of Jerusalem created for sale in the The American Colony Store, Jerusalem.
The American Colony was founded in Jerusalem by millennialist missionaries c.1881, building a self-sufficient community, with its own agriculture, cottage industries (including an important photographic studio) and a hotel for tourists. It also became deeply involved with the local community, creating a hospital and schools, including an Islamic School for Girls overseen by Bertha, wife of Frederick Vester. Sadly the American Colony did not survive the unrest of 1947-8.
