Balfour Day, the Old City of Jerusalem, 2 November 1929. Palestinians and many Arabs commemorated the anniversary of the Balfour Declaration (2 November 1917) with mourning, as indicated by the black flags. The person second left in 96 is carrying a collection box on behalf of the Emergency Relief Committee (see 92). The sash across his chest reads, "Honor thy martyrs."
