Enter a free text date.
La Tourneau sits and smiles with an overturned plate and napkin in front of her in the foreground. She might be the same person as in MS0183-29-20. Peoples Temple operated residential care homes for the elderly during this period. This photograph is from the "Healings" album in the Peoples Temple Collection. Written on the inside front cover are the names Royal Mershon and Lula Mae Mershon. Scrawled on the back in ink is the number 2, with possibly a three above it to make 32.
