This is one of the few images Himmelreich made for the Jewish National Fund - at the time to protest restrictions imposed by the British on land purchase for Jews. The reasons are clarified in the catalogue Alfons Himmelreich: Photographer on the Roof (Israel, The Open Museum of Photography in the Tel-Hai Industrial Park, 2005)
