The Matson Collection has tens of thousands of beautiful old photos of the Land of Israel, some of them with astonishing clarity. It would be a wonderful project for any Israelis who are reading this to match the photos, duplicating the vantage point as was done here. I'd happily publish them.
Honestly, it would make a great coffee-table book!
UPDATE: For those who want to see photographs Silwan when the only people who lived there were Jews, go here.
