1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.5 cm ( 10 x 6.875 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Ezekiel, vi:3-4.)--'And say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God; thus saith the Lord God to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Behold I, even I, will bring a sword upon you, and I will destroy your high places; and your alters shall be desolate, and your images shall be broken; and I will cast down your slain men before your idols.' We have a picture here of a summer house in Cæsarea Philippi. The weather is so hot here in the summer, and there are so many creeping and crawling things among the old ruins of this ancient city that people build above their stone quarters, in the warm season, summer houses such as you see in the picture . Cæsarea Philippi is at the foot of Mount Hermon, and truly has the prophesy of Ezekiel been fulfilled in this city. Here the altars are desolate, and the images broken, and the temple of Pan is in ruins." "Vol. 2" and "B2" are printed beneath the text
Two houses covered with branches and leaves have been built on platforms above the stone walls of a one-story home
