1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.9 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Jeremiah, vii:12.)--'But go ye now into my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people in Israel.' It is said in Joshua, xviii:i, that 'the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there;' but because of Israel's wickedness the Philistines were permitted to smite and slay them in Shiloh, so that there fell in Israel 30,000 footmen, and the ark of God was taken here, and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain. Here we have the ruins of this city where the ark of the covenant remained so long. It is about 20 miles north of Jerusalem, on the way to Nazareth. There is nothing here but broken ruins. In May, when this scene was taken, this whole region was illuminated with flowers." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5394BAI/LVii120CAJS (Voyager # 362224)
