Description: Slide 26: one of a collection of lantern slides shown at Clondalkin branch library c 1910. Description given in booklet: Following the path shown in a former picture we climb the Mount of Olives. A few minutes and it reaches a ledge of smooth rock. Turning round, the whole city lies before us. The dome of the Mosque rises in the vast enclosure of the Mussulman's Sanctuary, as, in the time of Christ, the temple buildings spread themselves before His eyes. Nowhere else on the Mount of Olives is there a view like this. Immediately below is the valley of the Kedron, here seen at its greatest depth, and thus giving full effect to the great peculiarity of Jerusalem, seen only on its eastern side, its situation as of a city rising out of a deep abyss. It is hardly possible to doubt that this rise and turn of the road is the exact point where, on the entry into Jerusalem, the multitude paused again, and “He, when He beheld the city, wept over it.”
