Photographer's Note

Seven Sisters is a name called the switchback road, built on a Roman road, once there were 17 curves - going uphill's (and down) from the Castel mountain in the outskirts of Jerusalem, to the west.
Today referred to as this is the part in the road that descends from Mevaseret, and used to be the main road to Jerusalem in the 1940th.
A British official under the British-Mandate than, name the place after the Seven Sisters cliffs, Sussex, so goe's the legend...
I remember the place in a 5th grade trip to Jeruslem, 1964, no trees than, bare land and rocks only, with no separation fence.
