Colorized Footage of Jerusalem's Jaffa Gate in 1897!!

Well here is a blast from the past. A 1-minute video from 1897 at Jerusalem's Jaffa Gate was just colorized and digitized. My favorite are the people who stop to look at this camera contraption like it is a UFO. The film was brought to life by the "Film Rescue" YouTube channel.


The footage was taken in April 1897, just months before the small section of the wall [not visible] between the Jaffa Gate and the [mistakenly-named] Tower of David was taken down for the visit of Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany the following year.


The building on the right is now the Israeli Ministry of Tourism office, where just outside - as a licensed tour guide of Israel - I often meet clients for a tour of the Old City of Jerusalem.
