- The Story
The year is 1900, and a whole new century lies open as a group of young men set off on the journey of their lives. They travel from Scandinavia down through Germany, Switzerland, Tyrol, Austria-Hungary, Italy, before finally reaching Palestine / The Holy Land.
This image is one of the rare glass plate negatives, curated by eyeeye.me, that bear witness to the young men’s inner and outer journey.
