Disclaimer: Many of the captions of the above pictures, as printed in the 1899 and 1903 editions, include the word "typical," which seems to reflect the mentality of the late 19th century.
These images are included here not to perpetuate racial or ethnic stereotypes, but to illustrate the clothing and hairstyles that were evidently typical of people living in Palestine in that era.
