[Crowd in Front of an Open Church Entrance]

Description:

Photograph of a group of Hispanic church-goers standing in a crowd in front of the entrance to their church. Most of the people in the group are facing the church, and there are a couple more smaller groups scattered throughout the image. The church building has a tall belfry that is connected to the double-door entrance and cut off at the top of the image. The building continues along the back right-hand side of the image, where there is another back entrance. There is a car parked in front of the church also on the far right-hand side. There is a camera attached to a tripod in the foreground across the dirt road from the church. A handwritten note on the back of the photograph reads, "Taft, Texas 2nd Presby Church. [Taken at convention, 3-23-1947?]".
