Gravestone photo from the Mount of Olives? #israel #photographs

The page for that grave appears to be here: https://mountofolives.co.il/he/deceased_card/%D7%99%D7%A8%D7%95%D7%97%D7%9D-%D7%A6%D7%91%D7%99-%D7%A8%D7%95%D7%98%D7%A7%D7%95%D7%91%D7%99%D7%A5-yeruham-zvi-rotkowitz/#gsc.tab=0

It has section this which I believe gives the text of the inscription:
על מצבתו/ה נכתב:
"פנ ירוחם צבי ב'ר ברוך מווילנא נ' כו' תשרי תרע תנצבה רוטקוביץ "
ירוחם צבי רוטקוביץ1
 
However, there doesn't seem to be a photo for that grave, unlike some others I've seen on their web site. (For example, http://mountofolives.co.il/he/deceased_card/%D7%99%D7%95%D7%9D-%D7%98%D7%95%D7%91-%D7%9C%D7%99%D7%A4%D7%90-%D7%9C%D7%90-%D7%99%D7%93%D7%95%D7%A2/#gsc.tab=0)

I have noticed that their web site has been flaky in the past, so that some times it wouldn't load. Now there's a little box with the letter "i" in a circle, and text which Google Translate says means that the site is under construction, and you can note errors etc using the comment form at the bottom of the page.

Does anyone know how to get a photo of a grave on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem? The person in question, Yeruchim Tsvi Rotkowitz, died in 1910. A family member is known to have seen the grave in 1967 after the 6 day war.
