Aerial photograph – Turkish defences near the road to Jerusalem

Frank Hurley took some stunning aerial pictures during World War 1.  This particular picture shows the road into Jerusalem.  If you look closely, you can make out convoys on the road.  The British eventually captured enemy territory in the Battle of Jerusalem in 1917 after two campaigns.  It was considered a great moral victory at the time and lifted Allied spirits.
