Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Isaiah, xlix:6.)--'And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel.; I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the ends of the earth.' Through an open vista made of a tangled labyrinth of trees and flowering shrubs in the garden of the Knights of Malta we have a glimpse of St. Peter's Church at Rome. This structure, conceived in the genius of Michael Angelo, is the most splendid edifice ever lifted by faith in the cause of religion. It is an evidence of the truth of Isaiah's prophecy, and is an expression of the declaration that Christ was to be a light to the Gentiles and to be salvation to the people unto the ends of the earth. This garden stands upon the Aventine Hill, the highest of the seven in Rome."
A walkway with trees and vines at the sides leads towards an arbor; in the distance, St. Peter's Church can be seen
