Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Acts, iii:22.)-- We are permitted here to look upon the beautiful little mountain city where lived the prophet the Lord raised up, like unto Moses, but greater than Moses, for He who was prophet was at the same time priest and king. In the valley are the olive trees, whose very names call up Palestine and the East. Rising gradually up the sides of the hill are the white two-story houses, built of stone, and furnishing all that is necessary to make a striking and attractive picture. No one can ever tire of Nazareth. Valleys, mountains, transparent atmosphere, and deep, overbending skies unite with the beautiful stone houses to make a picture worthy the brush of Raphael. The Savior, who grew up here, and who spent so many of the years of His manhood here, is gone, but His spirit lends enchantment to the place." See 5173BAI/LVi91CAJS (Voyager # 358481)
