Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Micah, v: 2.)--' But thou, Bethlehem, Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.' The central point of attraction to the thousands of pilgrims who go to Bethlehem is the Church of the Nativity, which contains the birthplace of our Savior. A silver star, surrounded by lamps which burn day and night, shows the entrance to the grotto where the Savior was born. The manger is exhibited, and stations, all of which are hallowed by some legend, as well as many of the events from David down to Christ, and of the shepherds, the wise men, of Elizabeth, John, Joseph, and Mary, and of the good men of the first centuries of the Christian era to the time of Jerome, are all localized here."
