This wiki forum exhibits some of the photographs from JNB's travel album and welcomes the addition of commentary pertaining to these images.

"Beyond the romance—or melancholy pleasure—inherent in regarding the relics of ancient civilizations, photographs testify to the survival of the past into the modern era. They reveal both physical changes and the shifting cultural meanings antiquity has held in successive times and places." (x)
