1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.9 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I.Samuel, xi: 14, 15.)--'Then said Samuel to the people, Come, and let us go to Gilgal, and renew the kingdom there. And all the people went to Gilgal; and there they made Saul king before the Lord in Gilgal; and there they sacrificed sacrifices of peace offerings before the Lord; and there Saul and all the men of Israel rejoiced greatly.' This beautiful aqueduct, now used for carrying the water from Elisha's fountain into Jericho, stands in the region of ancient Gilgal. This is an historic spot. In the fields and plains around this aqueduct we are told that one went to gather herbs to make pottage for the sons of the prophets, when he found a wild vine and gathered wild gourds from it to mix with the pottage. Elijah and Elisha passed this way from Jericho to Jordan. It is in the neighborhood of the city of palm trees." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph, along with "Franklin Co Eng-Chi." See 5234BAI/LVi152CAJS (Voyager # 359668)
