Another Old Photograph

History Is Closer Than You Think...

Here's an interesting photo from Dad's archives.

In November 1963, Dad had served his hitch with the Navy & was living in Arlington, TX and working at a photo portrait studio.

In between trips out to Wichita Falls, TX to visit Mom (who at that point had no clue I was on the way in another 4.5 years, but they had a wedding date set for the following June), Dad took pictures all over the DFW area.

Dad lugged a camera over to Fort Worth, and managed to snap a photo of a passing motorcade. By the time he'd gotten back to Arlington, where he developed and enlarged the photo to display in the studio window, shots were ringing out in Dealey Plaza over in Dallas.

So, where were you on November 22, 1963?
