1 photograph : b&w ; 25.5 x 17.8 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I.Chron. xii:33.)--'Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank; they were not of double heart.' Tiberias has been the scene of many battles. It is perfectly in keeping, therefore, with the character of this town, both in ancient and modern times, that we should have Zebulun represented as a country from which went forth to battle those who were expert in war. In the days of Herod Antipas and Agrippa, this town was not upon good terms with the city of Jerusalem. The inhabitants of Tiberias surrendered voluntarily to Vespasian, so that their city was spared. The city was sacked by the Caliph Omar in the 7th century, and subsequently by Saladin in the 13th, when it was much injured. Through battles and earthquakes, its palaces, churches, synagogues, institutions of learning, baths and theatres, have passed into complete desolation." "N" 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 5451BAI/LVii177CAJS (Voyager # 362788)
