1970s marches: Jesus march

A young woman expresses her faith at the end of a Jesus march to Parliament in October 1972. The crowd was singing hymns with the backing of a Salvation Army band. Although these years saw the beginning of a decline in church attendance, there was considerable visible public affirmation of Christian belief.
