This is a digital reproduction of an image held in the private collection of George Harb.

The photograph mounted on card depicts George Harb posing among trees and is accompanied by a poem written by Elias Giacaman (George Harb’s brother-in-law). The poem reads: "Bethlehem 23rd April 1956. If the days grow dark, if care and pain, Press closer and sharp, on heart, and brain, Then lovely pictures, still shall bloom, Upon the walls, of memories room."

This image is part of the George Harb Photos collection, within the George Harb project of the Planet Bethlehem Archive.
