Notes:
Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Jeremiah, xxv:19.)--'Pharaoh king of Egypt, and his servants, and his princes, and all his people.' The Pharaoh to whom Jeremiah refers is not Cheops who built the Great Pyramid for his tomb. Ezekiel's Pharaoh was the successor in after ages of Cheops. 'Pharaoh' is a general term used by the ancient Egyptians to denote their ruler. The King's Chamber is near the heart of the Great Pyramid, the largest that was ever built. Cheops was the second king of the fourth dynasty, and according to Wallis Budge, reigned 3733 B.C. The name of this Pharaoh was found written in red ink upon blocks of stone inside the pyramid. The King's Chamber is lined with granite, and measures about thirty-five by seventeen by nineteen feet. The floor of the King's Chamber is about one hundred and forty feet from the level of the base of the pyramid." See 5318BAI/LVii44CAJS (Voyager # 361024)
Walls of a chamber in the pyramid; two people are inside the chamber; the rear wall appears to have several names and the date "1888" on it
