Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Micah, vii: 19-20.)--'He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities: and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.' Twenty-six hundred and six years after the utterance of this prophecy we are able to see how it has been fulfilled in the providence of God through Jesus Christ, not simply to the Jews, but to the human race. Through Christ the iniquities of the people are being subdued. Christian civilization, with all that it contains of commerce and institutions, is but the outgrowth of the love of God expressed to men through Jesus Christ. This picture above of the harbor and shipping of Corfu is an illustration of this propecy, for it is a scene of Christian civilization."
A steamship is moored in the harbor; small boats (some with an overhang) are pulled up to the ship; ship's name [Najade ?] appears on the bow and starboard side
