John Robert Yeargan film
« on: September 29, 2018, 08:46:02 PM »
This is footage of President John F. Kennedy's motorcade in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, followed by footage shot in Dealey Plaza the next day, November 23. The motorcade footage was shot from the NW corner of Market St. and Main, the last intersection before Houston St., which is where the motorcade would have made a right turn into Dealey Plaza--therefore this footage was probably taken less than a minute before the shots were fired that killed President Kennedy, and wounded Texas Governor John Connally. The original footage is 8mm motion picture film, that has been blown up to a new 16mm preservation negative via a wet-gate transfer; the digital video here was taken from a high-resolution scan made from a 16mm print, that was struck from the new preservation negative.

Thanks Robin,

I wonder why the guy is on the top of the structure above the walkway between the Pergolas.

One of these, maybe?   ::)



Seriously though, It looks to me like he could be holding a Cable reel with his right arm, and reeling out Cable, maybe for TV or Radio purposes.
