Description
The Greek Church and two smaller buildings (one with a roof).
The photograph is in a book with a typed description. The description: "(Joshua, v:10.)--'And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho.' This was the site of the first camp of the Israelites after they crossed over the river Jordan, the place at which they passed the first night in the Promised Land, and where the 12 stones were set up which had been taken from the bed of the stream. In the above view we have a picture of a church built by the Greek Christians. This is perhaps the most interesting building between the Judean mountains and the River Jordan. This is about 20 miles from Jerusalem, and to reach it one makes a descent of 3800 feet over the rockiest and roughest road perhaps in Christendom. There are many ruins found in this plain, but the Judean hills overlooking it are the same that they were when Joshua encamped here with the children of Israel." "K2" is printed beneath the text. The copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5407BAI/LVii133CAJS (Voyager # 362326).
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
