A photograph entitled 'Tombeau de David', taken by James Robertson and Felice Beato in 1857.

King David's Tomb is a Jewish religious site on Mount Zion in Jerusalem.

Robertson and Beato began working together in 1853. Together they photographed in Constantinople (now Istanbul), Greece, Jerusalem, and Balaklava where they documented the Crimean War, continuing the work of Roger Fenton (1819-1869).
