VISITING PILGRIM

A press photo with caption that reads:”A visitor stands at the famous Virgin Tree in the village of Mataria, six miles from Cairo, in whose branches it is said Mary and Joseph and the child Jesus hid in their flight from King Herod. The tree, a sycamore, is said to be an offshoot of the original. Tourists visit the spot every year.” Circa May 1 1948
