In November, 1963 my husband and I lived on MacDill AFB in Tampa, Florida along with our two young boys. On Monday before that horrible day, JFK was flying into Tampa and was landing at MacDill. I took my 6 year old first grade son to see him deplane. We were fortunate and were able to be only a few feet away from where he would be passing by. I could almost reach out and touch him as he passed by us in an open convertible. A thrill of a lifetime for me. On Friday I was watching TV when I heard the terrible news. JFK had been shot. Not long afterwards he was dead. Regardless of ones politics this was a dark day in our country. This book pictures some of the last places he saw.............

Despite being an Oswald-did-it book, this is a very good addition to the library of anyone interested in the JFK Assassination. What I found most fascinating were the early pictures of the construction of Dealey Plaza. I've never seen them before. Dealey Plaza is such a unique and unusual place in our country.. it's primarily known as the location of Kennedy's Assassination. When a place is tied so closely to one particular event, it almost feels like it was built for that purpose. And to think of Kennedy in his late-teens in one part of the world while the scene of his ambush was being created elsewhere, is very spooky. I also like some of the now-and-then items they include, which many books in this "Images of America" series don't do. Could have used more of Parkland Hospital, as that place is a bit ignored compared to the attention given to others, but so many great pictures are in here that you won't find anywhere else.

I was interested in the whole Kennedy assassination here 50 years later. I wondered how many of the original sites still exist and how they looked today. This book gave an excellent presentation of the information I was seeking.

I went to Dallas for the 50-year commemoration of JFK's death. This book was very helpful in finding the many notable sites relating to the event.

John F. Kennedy once spoke of the importance of "trying to maintain and keep alive in this country a very lively sense of our past...making it possible for those who come now and perhaps can only catch American history through seeing and feeling it." JFK recognized the importance of preserving history and conveying historical truth to the American people through a direct experience. The authors of this book have made a sincere, but uneven, effort to capture the historical significance of the death of our thirty-fifth president through a whirlwind tour of the essential historical sites of Dallas-Forth Worth.

It was disappointing that the captions and commentary were so brief. Often the comments raise more questions than they answer. For example, the authors state that the Dealey Plaza lawn "provided Dallas citizens with a large gathering place from which to see and greet the president." (p. 65) But we know from the films and photographs that there was only a handful of the onlookers standing on the plaza lawn on November 22, 1963. The question is : Why?

The strength of the small volume is in the photographs of the key locations associated with the assassination and its immediate aftermath. The most detailed section is a pictorial history of Dealey Plaza. The design of the plaza grounds and pergolas was part of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal that put Americans back to work through the WPA. The history of the Texas School Book Depository is also vividly captured in photos dating back to the early twentieth century. The construction of the "triple underpass" is shown in its different phases. The beautiful plaza area was featured in postcards of the 1940s and 1950s to depict "the gateway to Dallas.
