Detail from Henry
Nathanson, 'Damascus Gate'
Summer's Journey to
Europe and the Middle East
This exhibition would not be
possible without the
generosity of Henry Nathanson's granddaughter
Merle Kastner of Montreal, Canada.
In the summer of 1913, Henry Nathanson accompanied his parents on a
grand tour of Europe and the Middle East. Being the prolific
photographer that he was, he took many photos of the people and
historic sites that he visited. First a visit to England and France,
and then on to Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Turkey, Greece, Romania (the
country of his birth), and lastly to Vienna, Austria. In this
exhibition you will be privy to nearly one-hundred and forty
photographs taken by Henry Nathanson nearly a century ago, not long
before the world would be turned topsy-turvy by the advent of the
first of two world wars.
