Description
A black-and-white photograph of Samuel M. Jackson standing in front of Jack's Memory Chapel, located at 639 E. Marshall Place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Jackson is standing on the front steps, in front of the screen door, with his hands clasped. He is wearing a light-colored jacket and medium-colored trousers, and he is facing the camera. The business is in a front-gabled house that has one story in the front and two or more stories in the back. The building has brick porch posts, light-colored wood siding, and a screened-in porch. The house number [639] is visible above the mailbox attached to the side of the screen door. At the center of the photograph, below the house's gable, is a neon sign [JACK'S MEMORY CHAPEL]. There is a small ceramic urn in the yard at the lower center-right of the photograph.
