“The prevailing colours among the women are dark blue and red; … The men, in striped mantles of goat’s hair and long cotton shirts reaching to their feet, blue or in coloured stripes … All around the [Jaffa] gate … are stalls where they can buy flat cakes of bread, such fruit as is in season, or if they are minded to, luxuries; eggs roasted in hot embers, or morsels of meat strung and fried upon skewers.”—Mrs. A. Goodrich-Freer, British traveler to Jerusalem
