THE KENNEDY GALLERY:




First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's arrival at the Chamber of Commerce
breakfast in Fort Worth, Texas, on November 22, 1963, was deliberately
delayed until after everyone else had been seated, so that Jackie
could make a grand entrance -- and she did, which is depicted in
the photo above. Secret Service agent Clint Hill, who was
assigned to protect Mrs. Kennedy, leads the way.

For video footage taken during the Fort Worth breakfast, plus many
links to assassination-related television and radio coverage,

In the photos below, President John F. Kennedy and First Lady
Jacqueline Kennedy are seen arriving at Love Field Airport in Dallas, Texas,
on Friday morning, November 22, 1963.

Texas Governor John Connally and his wife, Nellie, can also be seen in the doorway
of the Boeing 707 in the rarely-published third picture shown below.

Less than one hour later, both President Kennedy and Governor Connally were on stretchers inside Parkland Hospital after having been shot by Lee Harvey Oswald
in Dealey Plaza. The Governor would survive his serious wounds,
the President would not.

The death of John F. Kennedy plunged the nation into a period of unprecedented
grief and mourning, as JFK became the first U.S. President to be
assassinated since William McKinley 62 years earlier.















-------------------------------------------------------




The above photograph was taken just seconds before Jackie Kennedy was handed a bouquet of red roses by Mrs. Earle Cabell (the wife of the Dallas mayor).

This beautiful picture isn't seen very often. It exhibits outstanding color and is one of a series of Love Field photos snapped by White House photographer Cecil Stoughton on that tragic Friday in November 1963 when the nation lost a President.

Governor John Connally (standing up in the Presidential limousine),
and reporters Seth Kantor and Robert MacNeil.

This is a really rare motorcade picture -- an aerial view of JFK's limousine in
downtown Dallas. Note that driver Bill Greer has his door open (probably
in an effort to keep the crowd back, because the police motorcycles on
the left side of the car were likely not in their normal positions when this
picture was snapped, due to the heavy crowds on that side of the street).

Also barely visible on the far right side of this photo is Secret Service agent
Clint Hill, who was riding on the rear bumper of the limousine when this
picture was taken. He rode on the bumper when the crowds got very thick,
which occurred approximately four times during the Dallas motorcade.

Four more pictures of the President's car in Dallas.
A lot of onlookers had busy cameras that November day:

A vibrant color photo of the Dallas motorcade on Main Street, just minutes
before the assassination. Dealey Plaza looms in the far background.


-------------------------------------------------------




Here's another rarely-seen picture showing the Dallas motorcade
and the heavy crowds that the President and First Lady
encountered on November 22, 1963.


-------------------------------------------------------




Another motorcade photo.

-------------------------------------------------------




This is a still frame from the George Jefferies Film, which was discovered
in February 2007. This image depicts the President's car on Main Street
just a few blocks east of Dealey Plaza.

More information about this "new" film can be found HERE (including a
link to view the entire film, which is in vivid color).


-------------------------------------------------------

Here are three still frames from another "new" amateur film of the Dallas
motorcade, which was discovered for the first time in early November 2013.
This short color film was taken by Andre Leche on the north side of Main Street
just a few minutes prior to the assassination. Leche's footage shows JFK
engaging in conversation with Governor John Connally, who is turning
around in his seat to look at the President:










Watch Mr. Leche's film HERE.


-------------------------------------------------------




This picture shows the President's car on Main Street, approaching
Houston Street, just about to enter Dealey Plaza. Note the fact that
several people are hanging out of open windows on the second floor
of the building on the left.


-------------------------------------------------------




This eerie photo depicts President Kennedy brushing back his hair as his
limousine rounds the corner from Main St. to Houston St.

The open sniper's window on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book
Depository is just barely visible in this rather bleached-out photograph.
(I don't think a better version of the picture exists.)


-------------------------------------------------------




Just seconds before tragedy.....

This is a still frame from the amateur movie taken by Dealey Plaza
witness Robert Hughes. Just like the picture above this one, this Hughes
image is quite eerie in nature, since it shows both JFK's limousine and
Lee Harvey Oswald's "Sniper's Nest" window within the same image. The
assassin's window on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository
is at the very top of the picture, on the far right-hand side of the building.

This particular still image from the Hughes Film is also valuable for another
reason, because it debunks the HSCA's "acoustics" evidence (which was
presented in 1978 as virtual proof of a conspiracy in JFK's murder).

More on the importance of this Hughes image can be found HERE.

To see the entire Hughes Film, go HERE.


-------------------------------------------------------




Assassination eyewitness Robert Croft took this up-close picture of the
President and First Lady after the limousine had made its fatal turn onto
Elm Street. Jackie Kennedy, probably to the photographer's immense delight,
appears to be looking directly at Mr. Croft when he clicked his camera's shutter.

This photo was snapped by Croft at the equivalent of approximately Frame #161 of Abraham Zapruder's home movie, which was almost exactly the same time that
Lee Harvey Oswald fired the first of his three gunshots from the Book
Depository (the first shot missed the car and its occupants completely).

To see an even larger version of the Croft photo, CLICK HERE.


-------------------------------------------------------




This photo, taken by bystander Charles Bronson, shows JFK's car on
Elm Street during the assassination, seconds prior to the third and
fatal shot that struck the President in the head.

Bronson's picture is a bit blurry, but it's also a fascinating image, in that
it shows the limousine and many of the Dealey Plaza witnesses from a
unique vantage point (opposite Abraham Zapruder, who can be seen,
although not clearly, filming the motorcade from atop the concrete
pedestal on the left side of this photograph).

Visible in this picture are: "Umbrella Man" (with an open umbrella being
held above his head), the Newman family, Charles Brehm and son,
Mary Moorman, Jean Hill, the "Babushka Lady", and Mr. Zapruder.

CLICK HERE for a bigger version of the Bronson picture.


-------------------------------------------------------




This is the famous picture taken by Associated Press photographer
James Altgens, snapped between gunshots #2 and #3. Both of the
limo's victims (JFK and Governor John Connally) can be seen through
the car's windshield reacting to their wounds, which were sustained
just seconds earlier when bullet "CE399" from Lee Harvey Oswald's
rifle pierced the backs of both men.

-------------------------------------------------------




This is one of the most famous (and most studied) photographs
taken on 11/22/63, the Polaroid snapshot captured by Mary Moorman.
Abraham Zapruder can be seen filming the motorcade from
atop the concrete pedestal on the right-hand side of the photo.
The ugly thumbprint that mars the photo was left there by someone
who handled it after Moorman gave the picture to the FBI.


-------------------------------------------------------




Frame from Marie Muchmore's film.
Clint Hill runs toward the President's car.

Frame 366 of the Zapruder Film.

-------------------------------------------------------




Another photo taken by Jim Altgens, a few seconds after the fatal shot
struck President Kennedy. Secret Service agent Clint Hill has jumped
onto the back bumper of the limousine to aid Jacqueline Kennedy.

The motorcade's "lead car", with Dallas Police Chief Jesse Curry driving,
can be seen just ahead of the limo on Elm Street, brakes applied.


-------------------------------------------------------




The chaotic scene on Elm Street immediately after JFK was shot.
This photo depicts some of the "camera cars" that were part of the
Dallas motorcade. A reporter makes a wild dash toward the middle
car, as the driver hits the brakes to allow him to catch up.

Also visible on the left side of this picture, standing near the
Triple Underpass bridge, is eyewitness James Tague, who was
slightly injured on the cheek during the shooting.


-------------------------------------------------------




The limousine with the fatally wounded President is seen here just west
of the Triple Underpass, quickly approaching the ramp leading to
Stemmons Freeway.

This fascinating photo, taken by bystander Mel McIntire, shows the
Book Depository in the background. Note the time--"12:30"--being
displayed on the large "Hertz" sign atop the Depository.

it barrels down Stemmons Freeway, with Clint Hill on top:

A few minutes after President Kennedy was shot in Dealey Plaza, we see
people rushing toward the "Grassy Knoll" area. Clearly visible in this photo
(on the other side of Elm Street, near the curb) are famous assassination
eyewitnesses Charles Brehm and Mary Moorman.

Bonnie Ray Williams is clearly visible in a fifth-floor window. And some
of the boxes that shielded Lee Harvey Oswald's Sniper's Nest on the
sixth floor can be seen as well.

-------------------------------------------------------




This is Warren Commission Exhibit #482, which depicts a close-up
version of the famous picture snapped by Tom Dillard within a few
seconds of the last shot being fired from the sixth-floor window
(which is the top window in this photo).

Just beneath Lee Harvey Oswald's sixth-floor sniper's
window can be seen Depository employees
Bonnie Ray Williams (left) and Harold Norman (right).

Norman later testified that he heard not only the three gunshots
being fired from directly over his head, but he also heard the three
empty cartridge casings hitting the plywood floor above him.

If Dillard had been just a little bit faster on his camera's shutter here,
he would have captured the only image of Oswald's rifle in the window.

This picture also shows one of Oswald's rifle-rest boxes, positioned
at an angle on the sixth-floor window ledge.

Some conspiracy theorists over the years have claimed that the man wearing
the dark glasses at the far right in the above picture is Jack Ruby.
But two other photos showing the same man in sunglasses (below),

the observation deck of Reunion Tower. There are some excellent images
in this series, many of them taken from some rarely-seen vantage points.

All of these images were photographed by my brother on June 11, 2004,
which just happened to be the same day of former President
Ronald Reagan's funeral, which is the reason why the flags are at
half-mast in these pictures.
