PHOTOS: Dealy Plaza in Dallas, TX

Originally posted at The Eye on January 5, 2007. Somewhat appropriate since late August the last surviving brother of President John F. Kennedy, Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Massachusettes), passed away at age 77. Also on Sunday The History Channel aired a program that aired TV footage and radio broadcasts of everything that was covered not only on the fateful day of the Kennedy Assassination in Dallas, TV but also the ensuing two days involving Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby and the activities in Washington during the days between Nov. 22 thru Nov. 25, 1963. Very, very intense and I could only imagine that I was actually there living the history although I wasn't there.

The day we left we took a drive around downtown Dallas. We went to the site of the Kennedy assassination which was on Elm Street. Thus I took pictures of the Texas Schoolbook Depository and the Grassy Noll. Great to be at the site of an historic event although for some this only recalls the sorrow of 1963. People still remember where they were when President Kennedy was shot.

This is the window on the 6th floor of the Texas School Book Depository. This is the window where Oswald was to taken his shots at President Kennedy.

See that X. It marks the spot where Kennedy was hit by an assassin's bullet. The closeup is in the next photograph.

Check out the 6th Floor Museum located at the Texas Schoolbook Depository. Posted by Picasa
