1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 18 cm ( 10 x 7.125 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matthew, xv: 29.)--The Sea of Galilee has a charm for people above any body of water on earth. It is well known that nearly all the wonderful works of our Savior were performed in sight of this sea. Wherever he journeyed into the surrounding country, the Sea of Galilee was the place to which he returned. He was upon every side of it, and doubtless looked into its blue depths from the top of every hill that stands above and around it. So much do people love the waters of this sea that they gather the shells and the pebbles from its shores to distribute as souvenirs all over the world. The waters are perfectly clear and are always in motion. Storms sudden and terrific arise, falling rather from the surrounding mountains, but they are soon over." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5442BAI/LVii168CAJS (Voyager # 362728)
