Photography in Jerusalem, a website created by Hadassah College in cooperation with the educational website Snunit presents a carefully selected collection of pictures taken in the first half of the 20th Century together with some biographical information on the photographers. Amongst the photographers who are presented that way is pioneer Tsadok Bassan (1882-1956), the "court photographer" of the orthodox Old Yishuv, who also photographed the city's streets and population, and Alfred Bernheim (1885-1974), who documented documented the buildings of the architect Erich Mendelsohn and photographed many personalities of the cultural political Jewish elite in the 1940s.
