Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Luke, ii:22).--Mary and Joseph, in going from Nazareth to Bethlehem to be taxed in accordance with the decree of Caesar Augustus, doubtless passed by Jerusalem, and this road becomes interesting to us because of its connection with the visit of the holy family. It is, perhaps, very much to-day as it was when Joseph and Mary passed this way. The particular part of it we see is just below the Joppa Gate in the Jerusalem wall. One sort of conveyance passes along this way now that was never known until within recent years--that is the omnibus which carries passengers to and from the Jerusalem trains; for it is along this same way that modern tourists now go to the Jerusalem depot, which is about half a mile from the walls of the city."
