world pictures The West Bank: Deir Istiya and Salfit

In 1940, a British planner named Henry Kendall chose Salfit, a village a couple of miles south of Deir Istiya, as the test case for some new ideas about village improvement. One of the things he did was straighten and pave village lanes, such as this one. A simple thing, easy to overlook. Under the lanes, he ran water pipes to replace the traditional and sometimes inadequate cisterns under or near every house. The central water tank that he put in the village still stands, fed by pipe from a nearby spring.
