Aerial photograph of the city of Jaffa. A similar photograph, from a slightly different angle, can be seen in the book 'Wings Over The Desert: In action with an RFC pilot in Palestine 1916-18' by Desmond Seward, p. 186. According to the caption in the book, the image was taken by the author's father, William Eric Louis Seward (WELS), a pilot with the No. 14 Squadron, Royal Flying Corp, in 1918.

One of an album of 24 black and white photographs of the Middle East during World War I, probably taken by Australian Flying Corps photographer Norman Henry Clutterbuck, the maternal uncle of the previous owner Ray Kerby. The album mostly contains aerial photographs of locations around the Middle East including Jerusalem, Jericho, Gaza and Jaffa some of which appear to be duplicates of photographs found in the war diaries of the No. 1 Squadron, Australian Flying Corps, held at the Australian War Memorial. The album ST 41221, from the same source, contains copies of some of the images included in this album.
