Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 6.875 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ezra, iii:7.)--'They gave money also unto the masons, and to the carpenters; and meat, and drink, and oil, unto them of Zidon, and to them of Tyre, to bring cedar trees from Lebanon to the sea of Joppa, according to the grant that they had of Cyrus, king of Persia.' When Solomon originally built the temple, he had the assistance of Hiram, king of Tyre, who sent cedar from Lebanon by way of Joppa (Jaffa) to Jerusalem. So we find that when Zerubabel undertook the rebuilding of the temple, he had a grant from Cyrus, king of Persia, to bring cedar trees from Lebanon by way of Joppa to Jerusalem. We give an illustration of Jaffa from the hotel window. This city has a remarkable history. At different times it has been pagan, Jew, Moslem, Arab, Mameluke, and Christian. There are beautiful gardens about this old city filled with towering palms, and orange and lemon trees." See 5168BAI/LVi86CAJS (Voyager # 358394)
