Work Type
1 photograph
25.4 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
A stone building has three large domes and several small domes at the corners. A mihrab-shaped fountain is at the front center.
The photograph is printed in a book with a typed description. The description: "(Acts, ix:36.)--'Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and alms-deeds which she did.' The site of the house of Tabitha in Joppa is always pointed out to travelers as one of the places of interest. Joppa almost ranks with Damascus in being one of the oldest cities in the world. Pliny says it existed before the flood, and Josephus says it was founded by the Phoenicians. Strabo says that it was here that Andromeda was exposed to the sea monster, and in Pliny's time the chains were said to be pointed out in the rocks to which she was bound. Joppa is interesting to Christians now, however, because it was the home of Tabitha, whose charity has blessed the world." "G" is printed beneath the text. See 5163BAI/LVi81CAJS (Voyager # 358307).
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
