Those who are lucky enough to have a copy of 'The Changing Land Between the Jordan and the Sea' will be familiar with a few of the photographs, but here is the whole of Groll's 119 page album.

see the description in English here http://web.nli.org.il/sites/NLI/English/collections/personalsites/Israel-Germany/World-War-1/Pages/Fritz-Groll.aspx

the album itself can be seen here http://rosetta.nli.org.il/delivery/DeliveryManagerServlet?dps_pid=IE23600131&gathStatIcon=true

[note that the album 'reads' from right to left (page 1 extreme right & page 119 extreme left)

I also found that the proportions were correct only when one right-clicks to open the image in a new page – tedious, but so far I have not found a better way]

I am nevertheless finding it fascinating and have quickly picked out some samples

Were these confiscated from captured English officers?

Like many a tourist, sometimes later the location cannot easily be remembered: is it Cesarea, or Akko or... Finally he decides it is Sidon

Deutsch: Filme aus dem Tornister eines gefallenen englischen Offiziers

English: Films out of a knapsack of a British officer, who was killed in action.
