First Ever Photos of Jerusalem?

These very well could be the first photographs ever taken of Jerusalem. They are from 1844 and were apprently taken by Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey, a French traveler and photographer.  Much like other travelers over the centuries had documented, these photos show a desolate city and barren surroundings — especially compared to all of the major cities around the world during the same time period. Note the lack of a significant population or development, unlike the constant barrage of lies that are constantly spread by the “palestinian authority” about their supposed deep-rooted history here. Of note is that these photos were taken just before the miraculous return of the Jewish Nation from exile to their homeland in Israel. Over the following years Jerusalem flourished as Israel regained sovereignty… Please help us SHARE the TRUTH about Jerusalem!
