الحياة الحضارية والاقتصادية في فلسطين قبل النكبة

افتتحت عدة وكالات سيارات عالمية فروعاً لها في فلسطين قبل النكبة، كان أشهرها (مرسيدس بنز) عام 1933 وقصة عائلة غرغور من يافا التي كانت تستبدل سيارات المرسيدس من ألمانيا بصناديق البرتقال، ففي ذلك الوقت لم يكن بالإمكان صرف المارك الألماني وتحويله الى الجنيه الفلسطيني، فكانوا يقدرون ثمن السيارة بعدد صناديق البرتقال فكان ثمن المرسيدس من طراز 170 يقدّر ب 500 صندوق برتقال.
الصورة أعلاه لوكالة سيارات ( بويك ) الامريكية في شارع الملك داوود بالقدس عام 1929، التي امتلكتها عائلة سبافورد التي جاءت من شيكاغو لتستقر في القدس عام 1881 كما اصبح ايضاً الفلسطيني شكري ديب احد وكلائها لاحقاً.

Economic life in Palestine before Nakba

Several international car agencies opened branches in Palestine, such as Mercedes Benz in 1933, when Gharghour family from Jaffa used to barter Mercedes cars from Germany with orange boxes, that time it wasn't possible to exchange the German mark to the Palestinian Pound. For instance, a Mercedes -170 was worth 500 boxes of Jaffa oranges.
The above photo which was taken in 1929, shows the BUICK dealership which was owned by Spafford family, who moved from Chicago to Jerusalem in 1881.
Then the Palestinian Shukri Deeb became one of the distributors as well.
