1 photograph : b&w ; 25 x 17.4 cm ( 9.875 x 6.875 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(John, ii:1)--'And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee: and the mother of Jesus was there.'--John, ii:1. Five miles from Nazareth and quietly nestling in the midst of olive and fig trees, is Cana of Galilee, accurately photographed as above. There are about two hundred families here. There is a Greek church, the dome of which you see in the picture, in which it is claimed are the water-pots which contained the water Christ turned into wine, and which was obtained from the spring shown in the foreground. These vessels are preserved with great care because of their historic and religious significance. This village, like many others in Palestine, would have passed from the memory of the human race but for the first miracle of Christ performed there." "L" is printed beneath the text. Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5419BAI/LVii145CAJS (Voyager # 362395)
