Australian Club, (old Fast Hotel, Jer. [i.e., Jerusalem]), Oct. 10 [19]40



Hotel Howard in Jerusalem was built in 1891 by German architect Theodor Sandel, then renamed as Hotel Fast in 1907. Cover Photo: British Mandate of Palestine was a geopolitical entity under British administration, established between 1920 and 1948 in the region of Palestine. The coronation of George VI and his wife Elizabeth as king and queen of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Commonwealth took place at Westminster Abbey, London, on 12 May 1937 and celebrated in all dominions and territories of British Empire. In the 1930s Fast Hotel housed the German Consulate and that's explaining nazi flags on the building flying together with British. After WWII broke out, the British took over the hotel and turned it into a base for Australian troops.
