Searching for Information: "Cafe Europa" at Zion Square


I am interested in pictures showing Jerusalem's Zion Square in the 30ies, 40ies and 50ies. Especially "Cafe Europa" which was located in the building where now "Bank Leumi" is having its local headquarter.

Apparently the popular "Cafe Europa" was founded in 1934 and existed until some time in the 50ies.

Additionally I would be glad if anyone was able to tell me where the exact location of the hotel of Malchiel Gruenwald (who accused Rudolf Kastner of collaborating with the Nazis) used to be.

Zion Square in the 30ies. The only picture I was able to find so far.
The door in the middle (with the round top) used to be the entrance to  "Cafe Europa". The same entrance where we step into"Bank Leumi" today.

The above house approx. two years ago. However, the taxi stand (to the left) does not exist anymore !
