They are in an open activities area, and a roof of a building at a lower elevation is visible. .282b: Students are on a stage inside a room with high ceilings.

Off and to the right of the stage, a group of men in suits sits and listens to the performance. The number "66" is handwritten in blue ink in the top right of the picture. Reverse of both are blank.
