Description

A group of men smoking chibouks is sitting by the walls of the Jerusalem Citadel, also known as Tower of David, whose entrance can be seen behind them. The citadel is described as follows by the author:

The citadel of modern Jerusalem, an irregular assemblage of square towers, lies on the north-western part of Sion to the south of the Yaffa gate. It has on the outer side a deep fosse. A solid sloping bulwark, rising from the bottom of the fosse, at an angle of about forty-five degrees, protects the towers.
