25.3 x 17.2 cm ( 9.875 x 6.875 in).
A well (with an arch) and several other stone buildings are in a valley.
The photograph is in a book with a typed description. The description: "(II.Samuel, xvii:17.)--'Now Jonathan and Ahimaaz stayed by Enrogel; for they might not be seen to come into the city: and a wench went and told them; and they went and told King David.' This well is situated in the valley of Kedron, near where it unites with the valley of Hinnom. Here David's servants waited for news from Hushai during Absalom's rebellion in order to gather and send unto their king. Here also Adonijah, David's son, assembled his friends when he aspired to be king in his father's place. The well is 125 feet deep. It is walled up with large rocks with an arch above of great antiquity[.] There is a large chamber at a depth of 113 feet, from the bottom of which a shaft leads to a rock-hewn chamber below. The people of Siloam sell this water in Jerusalem." The copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5268BAI/LVi186CAJS (Voyager # 360138).
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
