Transcript ACRE, THE KEY OF PALESTINE. 81 The only entrance to 'Akka is through Burj Kepi (the Gate Tower), near the extremity of the short eastern land-wall, which meets the sea-wall nearly at right angles at the head of the harbour. There is a good representation of this gate on page 73. It will be seen that the place of entrance, within an arch of horseshoe form, is on the south side of the tower, and after passing through it, it is necessary to turn to the left, that is westward, to enter the city. This is characteristic of entrances to walled towns in the East, they being very rarely direct. (For an interior view of a gate of similar construction see page 1, vol. i.) Towards the gate of 'Akka many roads converge ; not roads on which carriages can travel, but not very bad roads for horses, mules, donkeys, and camels, except in the southern WW0 ' - ' A WELL IN A GARDEN OF HAIFA. Showing a machine, called a sakiyeh, raising water to fill the adjacent tank, on the right.
