__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matt., xxi:28.)--The square upon which the Mosque of Omar stands contains thirty-five acres. Here stood the court, the palaces and the temple of Solomon, the temporary and inferior temple built by Nehemiah, and the gorgeous and magnificent temple built by Herod. The rock, sixty feet one way and fifty feet the other, over which rises the dome of the Mosque of Omar, is the most interesting spot in the world. Here Melchizedek offered sacrifice; here Abraham was about to offer Isaac; here Jacob saw the ladder leading up to heaven; here was the threshing floor of Araunah, the Jebusite; here was the site of an 'Altar for the burnt offering of Israel,' upon which David sacrificed, and here was the altar of the temples of Solomon, Zerubbabel and Herod." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5191BAI/LVi109CAJS (Voyager # 358949).
