Drug Store in Rehavia

The American Colony photographers took the picture on the right and on the main page about 80 years ago. The caption in the Library of Congress archives reads "A street corner in the Rehavia Quarter, Jerusalem."

Identifying the store and the street today is easy for veteran Jerusalemites.  The pharmacy is still there; they haven't even changed the Hebrew and English "Pharmacy" signs over the windows.

New stories were added to the building but it's not hard to locate the store on the corner of Keren Kayemet and Ibn Ezra Streets.
