Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.3 x 17.6 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Genesis, iv:20.)--'He was the father of such as dwell in tents.' In the twentieth verse of the fourth chapter of Genesis, tents are mentioned for the first time in the Bible. Many people continue to live in tents in Palestine, and the tents used by the natives to-day do not vary much from such as were used in the early history of the country. They are woven of goat's hair and last a long time. The picture given above is of the traveling tent used by the parties who were sent to Bible lands to get the pictures of Bible places which illustrate this work. This modern tent, with apartments, carpets, iron bedsteads, and every convenience necessary to comfort, is as far from the tents of the Bedouins in Palestine, as Western civilization is from the primitive civilization of the crude sons of the desert. The modern tent we here see stands in Nazareth, near the Greek Church, and just above the Fountain of the Virgin." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph. "B" is printed on the matte at the bottom right; same as 5083BAI/LVi1CAJS (Voyager # 356312)
