“An intensely interesting set of 80 photographs of Scenes in the Holy Land. Entering the Desert from Egypt, the route is by Hebron and Bethlehem to Jerusalem, of which about 30 views are shown -- then after a flying visit to the Convent of Mar Saba, on the borders of the Dead Sea -- the route northward is resumed by way of Bethel, Samaria, and Shechem, and then to Galilee, where our Saviour spent the early years of His life. Afterwards a flying visit to Damascus is made, and then one view of Palmyra or Tadmor -- the city founded by Solomon -- is given as a finale. In the course of the trip are given various types of the different inhabitants of the land, such as Turks, Jews, Bedouin, groups of the celebrated natives, Bethlehem and Nazareth. ”
