Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(John, vi:23.)--'Howbeit there came other boats
from Tiberias nigh unto the place where they did eat bread, after the Lord had given thanks.' Before us is a picture of this
same Tiberias as it appears to-day. We see the little boats out on the sea doubtless like those used in the time of our Lord.
We see the fishermen's nets drying. We see the cactus and the palm trees, and the scattering fig and olive trees. We have
in this picture all the things well nigh representative of Tiberias as it is to-day--sea, boats, nets, ruins, palm tree, fig
tree, olive tree and one new building. Once the magnificent expression of Roman power and Roman taste in architecture, Tiberias
is now the broken and desolate home of about four thousand Jews, who themselves seem also to be desolate and without heart."
