Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.8 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, liii.)--'Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground.' The fifty-third chapter of Isaiah is by all authorities conceded to refer to the sufferings of Christ. We give a view of the wheat market in Nazareth, the town in which Christ grew up. The scene such as we witness above has been one common doubtless in all ages of the town's history. Nazareth is upon a hill overlooking the valley of Esdraelon, which has been always noted for its fertility and its abundant harvests of wheat. Every place, and scene, and street, and hill, and rock in the town where the Savior spent thirty years of his life, is interesting. Large and rich life only can render a town significant and influential." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
