Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 18 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Mark, ix: 2.)--Mount Tabor competes with Mount Hermon for the glory of being the place of the Transfiguration of our Savior. It is on the road from Jerusalem to Nazareth, and in sight of the latter city. It is one of the mountains upon which our Savior, in his boyhood, doubtless looked every day. It would not seem strange if this had been the mountain selected for the Transfiguration. It is unique in its features. Upon the top of this mountain there are the ruins of an old church, and all who pass this way make a pilgrimage to its top. One of the most magnificent panoramic views can be obtained from the top of Tabor. It overlooks the plain of Jezreel and Nazareth, and the Sea of Galilee, and the Gadarene country, and Mount Carmel far to the south on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea."
