1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.8 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(II. Samuel, xii: 31.)--'So David and all the people returned unto Jerusalem.' We are looking toward the Holy City now from the top of the Mount of Olives. Between where we stand and Jerusalem is the valley of Jehoshaphat. To the extreme left is a cluster of minarets with a small dome. This is the tomb of David on Mount Zion. To the north of it is Zion's Gate. Coming eastward nearer to our point of view, almost at the bottom of the valley, you see the pillar of Absalom. The road passing it leads to Bethany. On the hillside near the Jerusalem wall is the Moslem cemetery. To the west of the extreme right of the picture is the tower of David near the Jaffa Gate. No other city on earth has had a history so interesting. More pilgrimages are perhaps made to it to-day than in any former period. This is the city of David". "I" is printed beneath the text.
