The finest photographs of early 20th century Palestine, shuttered in controversy
Litigation
On the counter of the small photography shop Photo Elia in the Old City of Jerusalem lies an early 20th century picture of the Western Wall, which appears squeezed among the homes of the Mughrabi Quarter that no longer exists. To contemporary Israeli eyes, there is something striking about the scene of worshippers: Women and men are praying together in public.

"The question of copyright was not with regard to each individual picture "but rather with regard to the book as a collection," explains Deuel Peli of the law firm of Agmon & Co., one of two attorneys who represented the family. "Somebody forged the whole book but at a very inferior quality. We hope the trial has created a deterrent effect and in the near future we will be seeing fewer pirated books. But we still don't know who printed the books."
