Birket Israil - Pool of Bethesda
These engravings are from The Land and the Book: Southern Palestine and Jerusalem, by William M. Thomson, D.D., 1881. Thomson was "forty-five years a missionary in Syria and Palestine". My copy of the book bears the inscription: "To Miss Edith June Thomas, from the members of the Christchurch Central Mission with their kindest wishes for her happiness on the occasion of her marriage. December 26th 1893."
