dc.descriptionSlide 5: one of a collection of lantern slides shown at Clondalkin branch library c 1910. Description given in booklet: The inhabitants of Bethlehem are all professedly Christian, but are a quarrelsome and turbulent set, ever fighting amongst themselves or with their neighbours, and in the disturbances which take place so frequently at Jerusalem, the ringleaders are commonly found to be "Bethlehemites." The women are remarkable for personal beauty, and more handsome faces are to be seen here in a few hours than elsewhere in the East in many days. The dress is peculiar but becoming. A sort of tiara of some bright metal encircles the head, over which is folded a white cloth which hangs down upon the shoulders.en_IE
