This picture was taken in about 1911, and shows a little boy holding a rooster. The picture appears to be a hand tinted black and white photograph. The picture was taken near Jerusalem. I don't know if you have ever been around chickens, but roosters can be pretty mean. I was terrified of roosters when I was this boy's age, because I had had a few get after me. Anyway, I thought it was an interesting picture from long ago.


  1. Beautiful picture, I do know how mean roosters can be. My father used to have a big white rooster called Mildred who took all his aggression out on me.

  2. Maybe this rooster isn't crowing any more and that's why he's slumped over in the boy's arms?

  3. BEAUTIFUL picture!!!!
    like if it was taken yesterday!
    where do you get all these pics? you're my idol :)

  4. great picture. but i think the rooster is dead.
