The photograph captures guests, including the Kattan family and members of the Church, at a political event in Bethlehem. The event was most likely organised by the Pasha Tewfiq Mattia Kattan, captured in the centre of the image wearing a suit and sunglasses. The Pasha Tewfiq Mubarak Kattan served as a political candidate for the Jordanian government during the time of Jordanian rule over Palestine. To the left of the photograph, seated and having a cup of tea poured for him is his father Mattia Musa Kattan.
