The collection includes more than 15,000 photographs, most black and white, and more than 5000 color slides. The majority
of the images were photographed in Israel between the 1950s and the 1980s, mainly by Israeli photographers. Some of the files
contain ephemera such as newspaper clippings and other promotional materials.
Lahiton magazine was conceived in 1969 by two partners, Uri Aloni and David Paz, and was funded by an investment from Avraham
Alon, a Ramlah nightclub owner and promoter. The name “Lahiton,” reportedly invented by entertainers Rivka Michaeli and Ehud
Manor, combines the Hebrew words for (musical) hit, “lahit” and newspaper, “iton.” In 1976, Lahiton merged with the fan magazine
Olam ha-Kolnoa [Cinema World].
