J. N. F. Starts Work on Haifa Bay Workers’ Quarters

Download PDF for this date

Work has been commenced by the Jewish National Fund on the foundation of the Workers’ Quarter on its Haifa Bay lands, the first activity to be carried out here. The site of the Quarter adjoins that of the government railway shops which the Fund granted to the government in exchange for another site elsewhere. Two hundred houses are to be built in the Workers’ Quarter, which will be occupied chiefly by Jewish workers employed in the railway shops.
