Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I.Samuel,iii:20.)--"And all Israel, from Dan even to Beer-Sheba, knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord.' This is the well known city which marks the northern frontier of Palestine. It was originally called Laish or Leshem. (Joshua, xix:47.) It is now called Tell el-Kadi. It is three miles from Caesarea Philippi. This was once a very historic place. Here Jeroboam built a temple and established the worhsip of the golden calf. We have now nothing but a thicket of reeds, oaks and oleanders, which entirely hide the shapeless ruins, but are kept fresh and green by the waters of one of the sources of the Jordan. This is one of the most beautiful places for a city in Palestine. The region round about it is of unrivaled fertility, but the ancient city of Dan is without a single inhabitant. Thus the prophecy uttered concerning it is fulfilled to the letter." See 5464BAI/LVii190CAJS (Voyager # 362875)
