A column of heavy artillery, reinforcements and supplies is entering a gorge (Wadi Ali) in the Judaean plateau near Anwas, about 18 miles from Jerusalem, to support the infantry which had consolidated their position almost within sight of the Holy City. In the foreground is a 60-pounder gun, with camels beyond on the right.
