This is a partial video that Dr. Forrest filmed in 1930 during his and Evelyn’s trip around the world. It opens with him and Evelyn disembarking their ship. A moment later, they are on a train speeding through Palestine on their way to Jerusalem. Admittedly, the video is old and a little jumpy at times, but stick with it because it smoothes out. Halfway through, you will see Mrs. Forrest step through a doorway and walk out into the sunlight of the old city of Jerusalem. A few scenes later, Dr. Forrest is photographed while walking through ancient ruins of a temple. Then they both are on camels near the bases of the great pyramids in Egypt. We hope that you will enjoy seeing this priceless treasure from the past.
