The view looks north-northeast over Jerusalem, with the focus on the old walled city. Individual buildings are rendered pictorially with names of streets and major landmarks overlaid.

Owen (1897-1987) was an author and scholar of the Middle East. He published a book titled Jerusalem in 1972.

OCLC locates six examples of this bird's eye.
