1 photograph : b&w ; 25.5 x 18.2 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description:"(Acts, x:32.)--This is called the house of St. Peter here, but it is really the house of Simon, the tanner. 'Send therefore to Joppa and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is lodged in the house of one Simon, a tanner, by the seaside; who when he cometh shall speak unto thee.'--Acts, x: 32. This house of Simon, the tanner, is still pointed out. This, with the house of Tabitha, make up the two most interesting objects of historic interest in Joppa. Here it was that Peter learned the great lesson that God was no respecter of persons, but thought as much of a Gentile as of a Jew. He here learned that in every nation he that feareth God and worketh righteousness is accepted with him." "Franklin Co Eng-Chi" is printed at bottom right of the photograph.
