    The John Pritzker Family Fund has made a gift to the National Library of
    Israel to support the digitization and expansion of century old photographs. The collection will be named Pritzker Family National Photography Collection
    at the National Library of Israel. The collection has been curated over a century and provides a record of Ottoman and Mandatory Palestine and Israeli Society form the mid-19th century to the present. There are over two million items in the collection. Hundreds of thousands of photographs have already
    been scanned and uploaded to the National Library of Israel's website with
    free public access.

    https://web.nli.org.il/sites/NLI/english/Pages/default.aspx I was not able
    to find the collection but their blog post says there are photographs
    already uploaded.
