Description
Close-up view of a black banner with white letters hanging from the railing in front of Greater True Friendship Missionary Baptist Church entrance. It reads "Greater True Friendship Missionary Baptist Church; 1839-43 West Vernon Avenue; Where the Word of God is taken seriously!" Several steps on the right and a ramp on the left lead to the main double-door entrance, which can partially be seen directly behind the banner. Verso on photograph states that this church was formerly known as Kneseth Israel Congregation (Jewish), but it does not list when it acquired its current name. Photo dated: April 2004.
