Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(John, xx:1.)--The Grotto of Jeremiah is under the height we have already given under the name of modern Mount Calvary. Those who look upon what we call modern Mount Calvary as the place where Christ was crucified take the position that the tomb of Joseph, in which Christ was buried, is what is now known as the Grotto of Jeremiah. This Joseph of Arimathea, a city of the Jews, asked Pilate for the body of Jesus, and then took it down from the cross, wrapped it in new linen and laid it in a sepulcher that was hewn in stone wherein man never before was laid. Joseph of Arimathea was said to be a native of Ramleh, on the road from Jerusalem to Joppa. His connection with the burial of Christ brings his name to our day." "Vol. 2" and E2" are printed on the matte beneath the text
