Who, What, When, Where, Photo?
Fred Franz, coming out of court in Glasgow, Scotland in 1954.
The chap in the center of the photograph looks a bit like Monsieur Roncarelli. Was this photograph taken after he won his case against Quebec Premier Maurice Duplessis?
Well the link says Quebec... was there a trial in Quebec?
I don't know what Glen Howe looks like, but I guess there is a chance he is next to Franz...
I have just learned how to post photos and avatars on the forum. It is about time. I posted the above picture, but couldn't figure out to write a comment and so I replied to it.
The reason I am putting this picture on here is to find out if anyone recognizes anyone in this picture. Of all the people I knew back in the days I was as a Jaydub, I wonder if any others have left the Borg. I don't remember some of the names of people in this picture. I didn't take the picture but I was there. If someone recognizes people here, then I know that someone on this board reading this has left the camp.
Do any of you have other pictures of showing groups of JWs that one could recognize?
I don't see Glen How in the pic. He would be wearing a bow tie if he were there.
It is Fred Franz.
It is a court case. The picture was taken after the case was over and the people were leaving.
Glen How was the lawyer at the court case, but he is not in the picture.
The guy standing beside Franz can tell Glen How what to do.
The man in the white rain coat beside Fred Franz is Percy Chapman the branch servant of Canada at that time. A couple of years later he was removed and demoted by Nathan Knorr. He was a close associate of Leo Greenlees. It was never revealed why he was demoted to toilet cleaning. He got married a short time later.
The court case was in Quebec City around 1958. Franz was brought in to try and get plenty of Jehovhah's Witness doctrines into the court records. At one point he was speaking in a low volume voice and sort of lulling the court to boredom. Then he loudly said, and that's why the Catholic Church is a WHORE!! The opposition lawyers exploded with objections!
Most of the others in the picture are pioneers that came from around the province to witness the court case.
