General Allenby Takes Jerusalem
This is a magnificent photograph of General Allenby as he enters Jerusalem. The photograph was taken in December 11, 1917. He is pictured at the Jaffa Gate. Allenby's success was due in large part to the efforts of T.E. Lawrence, AKA Lawrence of Arabia.
Last night I watched Lawrence of Arabia with my daughter. WOW, I had forgotten what a good movie that was. It should be required viewing for all participants in this blog. OK, I guess I can nor require you to watch it. I can say it is a great movie, and they just don't make movies like that any more.
