President Kennedy on that dark yet sunny day in Dallas 50 years ago, minutes before he was assassinated.
November 22, 1963. "Overview of crowds of people waving as President John F. Kennedy and his wife sit in back of limousine during procession through downtown Dallas, Texas; Texas Governor John Connally and his wife ride in the limousine's jump seats."
November 1913. Fort Worth, Texas. "Some results of messenger and newsboy work. For nine years this 16-year-old boy has been newsboy and messenger for drug stores and telegraph companies. He was recently brought before the Judge of the Juvenile Court for incorrigibility at home. Is now out on parole, and was working again for drug company when he got a job carrying grips in the Union Depot. He is on the job from 6 A.M. to 11 P.M. (seventeen hours a day) for seven days in the week. His mother and the Judge think he uses cocaine, and yet they let him put in these long hours every day. He told me 'There ain't a house in "The Acre" [Red Light] that I ain't been in. At the drug store, all my deliveries were down there.' Says he makes from $15 to $18 a week. Eugene Dalton."
1939. Mobile, Alabama. "Collins store -- Royal Street near St. Louis Street." The Panama Cafe looks like our kind of place. Note the Dr Pepper truck in the alley.
February 1939. "Bankhead Farms, Alabama. A homesteader with some of the baby chicks he is raising." Supported by a roadster rather than a rooster.
Pittsylvania County, Virginia, circa 1935. "Berry Hill, Danville vicinity. Related names: Mrs. Simms. Built in three units -- in 1776, in 1812, and in 1850 -- by the Perkins family. The later building was done under the direction of Maj. Wilson, who married Peter Perkins' granddaughter. Used as a hospital by Continental Army in 1781."
Circa 1900. "Ostrich farm -- Hot Springs, Arkansas." Careful, these birds are "dangereous."
June 1943. "Corpus Christi, Texas." The Ascension.
May 1940. "Cotton carnival. Memphis, Tennessee." Waiting for her Royal Crown.
November 1952. A pep talk from Coach. "Hamlet (North Carolina) High School football team in locker room at away game."
March 1942. Virginia Beach, Va. "Fort Story coast defense. A tough job for soldiers is shoving the breech block of the giant howitzer into place. The screw threads help the block to withstand millions of foot-pounds of pressure caused by the exploding charge."
