1 photograph : b&w ; 25.3 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Hosea, i:5.)--'And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.' The city of Jenin lies on the frontier of Samaria, at the southern edge of the plain of Jezreel. This is supposed to be the ancient En-gannin which was a Levitical city of Issachar, referred to in Joshua xix:21, and xxi: 29. Here was the borderland between the provinces of Galilee and Samaria in the time of the Christ. It is a beautiful situation, well watered, and its name signifies 'a fountain of gardens.' The springs rise in the hills behind the gardens, and the water is conducted by an aqueduct to a reservoir in the center of the town, said to have been built in the first half of the present century. This place is the seat of Kaima Kam, a governor appointed by the Sultan at Constantinople to rule over it." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5363BAI/LVii89CAJS (Voyager # 361964)
