Jerusalem as seen from the southeast.
The photograph is in a book with a typed description. The description: "(Jeremiah, xiii: 27.)--'Woe unto thee, O Jerusalem! wilt thou not be made clean? when shall it once be?' Jerusalem is upon a ridge between two deep valleys, that of Jehoshaphat on the east, and that of Hinnom on the west, while the city itself is divided by another valley called the Tyropoeon, which runs from the northwest to the southeast. That portion of the city on the west of Tyropoeon is larger, and comprises Zion and Akra. That on the east is Moriah. All around the Holy City are hills from 50 to 200 feet high, making it true as the psalmist says, 'The hills stand about Jerusalem.' On the east is the Mount of Olives; on the south the Hill of Evil Counsel; on the west Hanina, and on the north the hill of Scopus. From this point we get a view of Jerusalem of to-day as we pass toward Nazareth." The copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5097BAI/LVi15CAJS (Voyager # 356581).
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
