Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Nabulus, the ancient Schechem, is one of the most interesting places in Bible narrative. It is situated in a narrow and very fertile valley. From this position on one of the routes leading to the top of Mt. Gerizim the white stone houses, with here and there beautiful green trees, make a picturesque scene. The town reminds one much of Jerusalem. the streets are narrow and dirty, and their being over arched in many places makes them quite dark. The bazaars, perhaps are the most interesting spectacle of modern Nabulus. The chief industry of the town is the manufacturing of soap. The section of the town nearest this standpoint is the Samarian quarter. Mountain Ebal is beyond. After the Israelites crossed the Jordon, half of the people stood over there. likely in yonder cove where the olive trees now appear. and half on this side on Mount Gerizim, and the blessing and cursing were read from the book of the law. (Joshua 8:33-34). This position accords well with the narrative in Jotham's parable, (Judges 9:7-21)"
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Kirjath-Jearim (meaning city of woods) received its modern name (Abu Ghosh from Abu Gausc) "The Father of Gaush" who was a famous robber chief. The town is about twelve miles from Jerusalem along the Jaffa road. There is very little doubt but that Abu Gaush is the site of Kirjath-Jearim. Its identification due to Dr. Robinson has met with general acceptance. Kirjath-Jearim is frequently mentioned in the Bible. It was assigned to Judah by Joshua. It was a city of the Sibeonites, but of more biblical interest than all else is the fat that here in the house of Abinadab, who was of Levitical family, rested the ark for 20 years after it was brought up from Beth Shemesh. And here it remained until David brought it up to Jerusalem."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Bethany is now called El-Azariyeh, the L in Lazarus having been mistaken by the Arabs for the article. It is small stone village on the southeast slope of Olivet, less than two miles east of Jerusalem. It has about forty houses, tenanted by Mohammedans only. The Ascension occurred at Bethany, as Luke tells us at the close of his gospel --- at Bethany, the home of the friend of Jesus. After convincing the disciples of His resurrection by many infallible proofs, and teaching them that the gospel must be preached to the whole world, and assuring them of the power of the Holy Ghost for world-wide testimony the Lord lifted up His hands and blessed them and passed into the heavens."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Queenstown itself is like a town lifted into reality from a fairy story. The foot of Queenstown rests on the deep blue water of Wakatipu, which has a serpentine lengths of 52 miles and amid majestic mountains. Facing the town are the Remarkable, huge sierras sculptured nobly by gigantic agents of Nature, and there are other rugged ridges and graceful peaks that help to make the charm of this peaceful lake land. This was a battleground of titanic glaciers long ages ago, but the monsters have lost much of their might, and have retreated to distant heights."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Rosario, the second largest city in Argentina, now has a good harbor which has been deepened by dredging. There are large stockyards and refrigerating plants located in the city. Before the days of freezing meats cattle were killed chiefly for the hides and tallow. Some of the meat was salted, but most of it was thrown away. Now the meats are frozen and sent to distant ports, chiefly in western Europe. This has meant a great increase in profits for those engaged in raising cattle and sheep. It has increased the value of the lands, caused railways to be built, and brought many more people to Argentina."
