Scenes of devastation in the Palestinian residential quarters of East Jerusalem, April to early May 1948: ruins of the commercial center outside Jaffa Gate. In 423, what was left of the Hotel Fast appears rear right, and the ruins on the far left side of the street are those of the Arab Bank's headquarters. (For street scenes in this area before the fighting, see, e.g. 207, 277.)
