Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Acts, ix:11.)--The Lord appeared unto Ananias, a good man of Damascus, in a vision, and commanded him to go into a street called Straight, that he might inquire at the house of Judas for Saul of Tarsus. This was just after Saul had been stricken down on the road near Damascus, by the great light from heaven, and by the sense of the enormous sin he was committing in persecuting the disciples of the crucified Christ. Just as it probably was two thousand years ago, so to-day the street called Straight is the leading one in Damascus. It is one of the streets in the city through which a carriage can pass. It is also the leading street for trade. Along this street St. Paul walked many times." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi."
Stone-covered street with a horse and wagon and a man and his pack animal; buildings with second stories line the sides of the street
