Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Hosea, viii:8.)--'Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure.' Smyrna is a great city on the coast of Asia Minor, whose leading merchants are Jews. Perhaps there is no city upon earth where the Jews have more influence in a commercial way than in this city. Not only in the time of Hosea was it true that Israel was swallowed up in Assyria and Babylon, but it continues to this day true that they are scattered among the Gentiles. The harbor of Smyrna is one of the most beautiful in the world. It is about two miles wide, and about six or eight miles long, lying due west from the city. Large number of vessels are always to be seen here, and because of the great trade of this city with the world it has come to have cosmopolitan modes of thought and manners." "Vol.2" and "I2" are printed beneath the text. Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph
