St. Louis, 1894.
Bain, Robert E. M
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, iii: 7,8.)--Jesus Christ was brought up in Galilee and often traveled through it. This scene is one common to the country. Every day one is likely to meet families traveling just as is here shown. Things never change in Palestine. As they travel to-day, they have always traveled, and there is no doubt that our Savior witnessed many just such scenes as the one here photographed. A couple of boxes are strapped on the back of a mule or donkey so that one box balances the other. Then a part of the family occupy one box while the remainder occupy the other. The head of the household goes in front to lead the mule and to protect and guide his loved ones. One is constantly impressed with the air of contentment which seems to gather in the faces of the people in this country." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph. See 5398BAI/LVii124CAJS (Voyager # 362242)
Two laden mules in the desert; a man rides one of the mules and the other mule has a woman and several children in oversized wooden boxes
