Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Zechariah, iv:9.)--' The hands of Zerubbabel
have laid the foundation of this house, his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the Lord of Hosts hath sent
me unto you.' In the above picture we are in the city of Beyrout, overlooking the Bay of St. George. We are at the foot of
the Lebanon mountains, from which the cedars were brought used in the construction of the first and second temples at Jerusalem.
The bay is called after St. George, concerning whom there are many legends. The old story of St. George and the dragon is
familiar to all. Tradition says that near this bay the dragon was killed, and that afterwards St. George washed his hands
in its waters. Beyrout is in the midst of the silk-growing regions, and now occupies the place in the commercial world that
Tyre, its ancient neighbor, formerly did." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph,
along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
