Uc)I auonal eograpnlc society Autochrome Lumiere by Maynard Uwen Williams PALESTINE'S TOURIST PORT AS SEEN FROM MOUNT CARMEL The curving bay between Haifa and Acre, historic harbor for a vast hinterland, is poorly protected and often rough. But the former has displaced Jaffa as a passenger port to the Holy Land. Haifa is rapidly growing up the side of Carmel and contains most ofthe few factories that Palestine possesses. The automobile highway connecting the seaport with Tyre and the Phcenician coast runs on the white sandsthat cutlike ashining sickle blade around the blue bay. In the background are the hills of Galilee, beyond which, on clear days, Mount Hermon liftsits snowy head (see also Color Plate XIII).
