Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of the US president J.F. Kennedy, is escorted to the Dallas City Jail as nightclub owner Jack Ruby shotÂ him in front of the policemen and the press. Oswald died shortly after,Â taking with him the truth of the US President assassination.
The picture was made in the Dallas police headquarters underground parking in 24 Nov.1963 by Bob JacksonÂ a press photographer from Dallas Herald-Times. Bob JacksonÂ was not especially a good photographer,Â he was just one of the many Dallas‘s press photographers, but this only picture is enough guarantee him a place in the History of Photography.Â Â
Also, Bob Jackson was not the only one whoÂ photographed this scene, another two photographers captured the moment, but Bob Jackson’s angle was the best from all.Â Â Â
