Two men were standing on a rather crammed exhibition stand, welcoming the visitors among cholera outfit boxes, boards running slogans such as "Stamp out sickness and pest -- Encourage health", and charts and diagrams regarding smallpox and other diseases. The picture was shot by Paul Carley, a malaria expert working for the International Health Board of the Rockefeller Foundation, during the Health Week organized in Palestine from the 17th to the 22nd of November 1924. The (Zionist) Hadassah Medical Organization had initiated the program, with the support of the British mandatory government, with a successful health exhibition in Jerusalem as a highlight of the week.
