1 photograph
25.3 x 17.8 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
The city of Jaffa as seen from the sea, showing some of the exposed rock ledges in the water.
The photograph is in a book with a typed description. The description: "(Jonah, i:3.)--'But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.' Jaffa was the ancient harbor of the Jewish capital. It was here that King Hiram of Tyre landed his cargoes of cedar wood from Lebanon, which were to be used in the erection of Solomon's temple. Jaffa has no harbor, and it is almost with peril to life that a landing is made here. There are ledges of low, jagged rocks just underneath the surface of the water, and it is only with great difficulty that places can be found between these rocks to ride in the small boats from the great ship to the shore. Many people have been drowned here. Pliny said the city existed before the flood." See 5164BAI/LVi82CAJS (Voyager # 358313).
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
