Photographs, engravings, & postcards
Foreigners were not allowed in Morocco, during the second half of the 19th century. One can therefore only find very few photographs dating from this period.
The only cities were some photographers could venture were Tanger and Mogador.

Most of the engravings treating of Jewish subjects appeared only at the beginning of the 20th century.
Less than 50 are known with a theme related to Moroccan Jews.

More than one thousand postcards are known, dealing with very diverse Jewish subjects from Morocco, and dating approximately from 1900 to 1930.
