Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.7 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Judges, xv:3.)--'And Samson said concerning them, Now shall I be more blameless than the Philistines, though I do them a displeasure.' This picture of a boat and oarsmen in Jaffa is given here because illustrating a scene in one of the oldest cities of the world, and a city belonging for awhile to the Philistines. This picture gives us an idea of how such travelers are carried to the shore in Jaffa as have previously arranged for a tour of the Holy Land through some dragoman or guide. Such travelers are met out at sea, and with their baggage are taken in charge as as soon as the anchor is cast. The pilgrim has no trouble whatever. Everything has been arranged for his coming. The party who made the trip to secure the pictures that illustrate this work made all the arrangements for a tour of the Holy Land in London."
