Photograph,1910, of a bread seller in Damascus,in front of the bakery." While we were passing through the crowded bazaars this after-noon, I was very much interested and amused by the number and variety of the street calls or cries." Two lads, carrying between them a large tray loaded of bread, cried out," Ya Karim! ya Karim !"That is not the name for bread. No, it is one of the attributes of God, and signifies the bountiful or generous; and since bread is the staff of life, the name implies that it is the gift of the Bountiful One". THE LAND AND THE BOOK W.M.Thompson.1886.
