Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Acts, xxviii: 15.)--We see the road in the above picture along which the tired and persecuted apostles walked in chains from the coast of Puteoli to Rome. At the point represented in our view of the Appian Way, St. Paul was about five miles from the city of Cæsars. Now amid tombs, which lined either side of the Appian Way, he was slowly making his way to the imperial capital of the world. While he walked amid the tombs of the great men who had reigned and died in Rome, he was also moving along the most fashionable boulevard, for the Romans built their tombs beside their gayest driveway, and thus he slowly entered the city where he was to be beheaded. This road now is strewn with the wrecks of tombs."
