Twelve men seated in two rows in a jury box in a courtroom. They all wear dark suits, white shirts and ten of them wear dark ties. The photo has been framed/marked with white lines to highlight the men and leave out the upper part of the courtroom walls, presumably. The jurors' chairs are of a dark wood with rounded backs, leather(?) backs and seats with metal button accents around the leather (perhaps affixing it to the dark wood of the chair). The room is in panels of light and dark woods and there is a dark flat surface (table or judge's area) in the right corner of the photograph. This surace has white papers or an open book on it. to the left to this table is a metal bar on two metal pipes that could separate the jury space from the general courtroom. It is in front of two jurors only. From the back row left: Mr. Banks is and older man with white hair looking at the camera. Mr. Miller has dark hair, dark eyebrows and appears to have an overcoat over his left arm. Mr. Stettin has dark hair, a large dark mustache, has his hands in his lap and is looking to the right of the camera. Mr. Jacobs sits in one side of his chair, has dark hair, small dark mustache and is looking at the camera. Mr. Bazzini has thinning dark hair and medium mustache, hands folded in his lap and looks at the camera. Mr. Forsythe has dark hair, dark mustache and looks at the camera.
