Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Mark, v:1.)--The Gadarene country lies east of the Jordan. From the point of our present view we see the dim outlines, beyond the Sea of Galilee, of part of the Gadarene country. It is supposed that the swine into which the devils entered ran violently down the steep hill opposite the present city of Tiberias. So that in this view we are looking at about the place where this notable miracle of our Savior was wrought. There are little boats also out on the lake we see, which are used by the boatmen to carry tourists across the lake. The Gadarene country gets its name from the city of Gadara, which is some miles beyond the Sea of Galilee. This view was taken from a point near an old wall, by the edge of the lake."
