Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(John, xviii:1.)--This is also called the valley of the Kedron, but is generally known as the Valley of Jehoshaphat. The Jews believe that the final judgment will be held here, and for this reason they regard it a great privilege to be buried on the sides of the Mount of Olives, so when they arise from the dead to be judged they will be close to the place of the final accounts. This belief among the orthodox Jews is based on Joel, iii:2-12. The Moslems have also adopted the belief of the Jews, and so they have turned the sides of the valley next to the walls of Jerusalem into a cemetery. In this valley are the tombs of Absalom, Zechariah and St. James. The brook Kedron flows through it. When the name 'Valley of Jehoshaphat' was first applied to this place is not known. The date is not mentioned in the Bible." See 5200BAI/LVi118CAJS (Voyager # 359181)
