Allenby - British general, noted for the liberation of Jerusalem from the Ottoman Empire in December 1917. He gave his name to one of the bridges linking Israel and Jordan (over the River Jordan). There is also a street in Tel Aviv named after him. Allenby St looks a bit crappy during the day, but after dark is allegedly home to some of Europe's finest nightclubs.
