Aimee Semple McPherson sits in a floral-lined chair at center, elevated off the ground. To either side of her, two men hold her up in the chair. A police officer stands to the right of the man holding right side of the chair. Along the right edge and in the foreground, a man stands in partial view and faces back towards Mrs. McPherson. Two more men stand in the foreground along the left edge.
