Viewing the photographs of the country in the early 1900's will help you understand what the country might have looked like during the Second Century and time of Christ. After years of directing university students group to Jerusalem, it was a joy to find the small shop in the Christian Quarter with beautiful photographs.

This small shop run by George Kahvedjian, the grandson of a survivor of the Armenian holocaust has beautiful, evocative photographs of old Jerusalem. It was special to speak with him and hear about a slice of a bygone time.

I heard about Elia Photo Service from a couple different Youtube sources and from a National Geographic program.
I purchased three gorgeous photos, two as gifts and one for myself.
They provide handy little tubes to transport them safely home in your luggage.
I highly recommend this place!

The owner's grandfather begun photographing places in Israel before WWII. The photos reflects nicely the era and the people.
Recommended during a walk in the old city.

This shop is a must visit for anyone that's interested in the history of Jerusalem. Not only does the grandson of Elia (who now runs the shop since his father passed away) know pretty much everything that there is to know about the city, the pictures are absolutely one of a kind and shows the history of the city in a way no others do.

Definitely going back (once I have more wall space for pictures!!)

This is the shop if a photographer, and one with a great archive and an interesting story. But if you are a tourist visiting the Old City and willing to buy a memory of your visit which is not fake, is easy to pack and of value, Elia's pictures are what you are looking for. His archive is a true time machine to the past of this place.

Elia Photo service is a Jerusalem institution. After you visit, you will notice that many of the photos from the shop adorn restaurants and hotels in the Old City. You will want to buy a photo, but even if you don't, to browse the photos is a tour through the history of Jerusalem from the Ottoman and Mandate eras. The owner is entirely professional, knowledgeable, and polite.

This is a great stop in Old Jerusalem. We loved the old photos of Jerusalem and the countryside. The owner is great to talk to and learn more about his father - who took the photographs - and the photographs. We bought the Jerusalem book and a couple of prints. Loved it
