View of the rock-encircled harbour at Jaffa, from the roof of the house of Simon the Tanner. The building in the foreground, with its domes and perforated parapets, is a characteristic example of native domestic architecture in towns and cities of Southern Palestine.

The traditional house of Simon the Tanner. A Mohammadan sanctuary. On the south side of the court of the house there is an arched recess, in which a lamp is always kept burning, and where pilgrims perform their devotions. A well of good water and a fig tree add to the attractiveness of this 'place'.
