1 photograph : b&w ; 20.4 x 23 cm ( 8 x 9 in).
Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Acts, xv: 41.)--'And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches.'--Acts, xv: 41. It is not definitely stated in the Scriptures when St. Paul entered Beyrout, or the city that stood where the modern Beyrout now stands. He could hardly pass through Syria, along the coast into Cilicia, without passing through the Berytus of the Greeks and Romans. This was a city of the ancient Jebelites. Herod the Great caused a mock trial to be held here over his two sons. Herod Agrippa adorned this city with baths and theaters. Here Titus came after the destruction of Jerusalem. The silk trade has flourished here from the time of the Romans. The falls are north of the city. They are at the foot of the Lebanon Mountains, and the water is largely melted snow." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
