Photo Archive Available Soon

More than 75 photos depicting everyday life in Jonestown will be online by the end of the year and available for viewing and downloading.The photos, which the editors of the jonestown report obtained from the FBI this past summer, show children at play and in school, adults at work – both in construction and in the industries which the community ran – and in recreational activities, the Jonestown health care facilities, and other glimpses of community life. There are no scenes of the final day.

As with many of the voices on the Jonestown tapes, most of the people in the photos are unknown to us. We would like to include identifying captions wherever possible, so if you recognize anyone in the photos, please let us know. The photos can be used free of charge, but please credit the jonestown report. Thank you.
