Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.9 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Hosea, xiv:5.)--'I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.' We give a picture of a waterfall in the neighborhood and in sight of the Lebanon range of mountains. The picture was taken by our artist at noon. The meaning of the words Beit Jenn is the Garden House, or the House of Paradise. There was once a dense population here, for there are many rock tombs in this neighborhood. The picture above presents a charming waterfall caused by the stream Jennani plunging over precipitous rocks. It comes in delicate streamlets, and now in rushing torrents among moss covered rocks, among which shrubs and grasses grow. This Jennani is one of the main tributaries, of the ancient River Pharpar, referred to in II Kings, v:12."
