Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.7 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Amos, 1-5.)--'I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the scepter from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the Lord.' The bar of Damascus here is a reference to the bolt which secured the gate. To break it was to throw open the city to the enemy. This figure refers to the breaking of the national strength and means of resistance. The flour mill, a picture of which we give above, is in the northern part of the city. The stream of water flowing under the bridge and which furnishes power to turn the mill is the river Abana. These mills in Palestine and throughout Syria are very crude in comparison with such as we know in Europe and America at the present time." "Vol. 2" and "H2" are printed beneath the text
