Notes Photographs are printed in a book with a printed description beneath in French
printed description: "En tournant l'angle Sud-Est de l'enceinte du Temple ou Haram, on arrive bientot en face d'une double baie muree. De la partait, dit-on, le pont de bois don't parle le Talmud, sur lequel on lancait vers le desert le bouc emissaire charge des iniquites d'Israel. Signalons dans le voisinage une poterne condamnee, haute de deux metres, ornee d'une croix peinte en rouge. Les murailles datent sans doute de Salomon: Herode, Justinien, les Croises et, en dernier lieu, les Turcs, ont successivement releve le rampart
leurs restaurations gardent une physionomie propre. En face de la porte Doree, s'etale le cimetiere musulman dont les tombes ne recouvrent qu'imparfaitement les cadavres. La coutume d'enduire les tombes avec de la chaux remonte sans doute a l'epoque de Jesus, qui comparait les pharisiens a des sepulcres blanchis." "Charaire, SC" is printed at the bottom of the photograph
