Description

View of Haifa and the bay at sunset, with the skeleton of a boat half-buried in the sand in the foreground and Mount Carmel in the background. Haifa was named Caiphas by the Crusaders. This picture is accompanied by the following description:

This view is taken from near the mouth of the River Kishon; and in the foreground characteristically lies one of the wrecks which constantly strew this exposed shore. Mount Carmel is a ridge of about eight miles in length, rising from the memorable Plain of Esdraelon, and terminating in a bold promontory.
