windmills Recent photos of Montefiore Windmill, Jerusalem

A recent article on the Montefiore Windmill, Jerusalem is nicely illustrated with some exterior shots of the mill. From the photos, one thing that struck me in particular is how poor the dummy sails currently on this mill are - they consist of entirely flat metal frames attached to the sail stocks.

I guess there are not many windmills in that part of the world to compare with, so whoever was commissioned to build these sails did so without reference to any real windmill sails.
