In my Grandfather’s War Diary entry from Saturday 13 February 1943, he visits Nazareth. He said –
Passed over Plains of Jezreel. Nazareth like all other Arab towns. Visited “Church of Annunciation” built over caves believe to have been part of Virgin Mary’s house. Church has three altars representing Gabriel the Angel – Mary’s parents & Virgin Mother. A few steps further on “Church of St Joseph” built over caves which Joseph & afterwards Christ used as carpentering shop. Church decorated with many beautiful stained windows each representing a different virtue of Joseph.
He most likely took (or purchased) these photos on this visit that day.
The comments under the photos are his own words from the backs of the photos.
