What's the back story on those, if you know?

Cheers.

R. Sherman - I just scanned them in last week and my father hasn't seen them in probably decades but from the context, they were taken in Washington DC at the same time as the previous picture posts (spring of 1964). I will ask him about them when he sees them again but from the group of photos, it appears as if a few guys were preaching on a street corner somewhere and things were getting very animated. Even the crowd's reaction was very animated. I haven't seen anything remotely close to that here in the states though I have seen some modern day versions during my trips to London. Even those were nearly as animated.

well, if that was in '64, they were off by at least a few decades! great shots

Sage - They were but had I just lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis a year and a half before, I might have placed higher odds on them being right!

I've been hunting for one of these image to use as stock. Any availability? Want to make a few hundred dollars? Get in touch!
