Subject matter
In this photograph, a crowd gathers on a main avenue near the entrance to the city of Bethlehem. The camera looks down on this crowd, possibly from an upper story window. The throng of figures who fill the foreground, along with their cast shadows, contrast with the light-toned stone and brick walls of the city in the distance. This image is one of hundreds of photographs made throughout Bonfils' career which purport to document various landscapes, cityscapes, and people of the eastern Mediterranean. 

Physical Description
A crowd of figures walk along a wide avenue in or near a large town.
