Enter a free text date.
Jones stands in a blue suit behind a microphone putting dark glasses down on the left side of a pulpit. Behind him are unidentified people, including choir members. The yellow curtains and white brick background identify this as Benjamin Franklin Junior High School, where Peoples Temple held services as early as 1970 before eventually moving to their own location down the street. This photograph is from the album labeled "Father and animals, Father and children, Political People, Enemies, Other Speakers." The developer's mark indicates that the film was developed in March of 1972.
