Ambulances only
« on: April 15, 2020, 03:57:15 PM »
In search for new photos I came up to several comparisons between ambulance entrances at Parkland hospital but it seems they are wrong. Present emergency entrance is not at the same place as in 1963. It was very interesting for me to see and compare present and 1963 Parkland hospital.

   Gotta wonder why Lead Car driver DPD Chief Curry would lead the JFK Limo into the "Ambulance" entry section of Parkland Hospital. That cop we see standing in the Middle on the (L) is actually standing atop a raised section of concrete which divided/separated ambulance parking slots. The JFK Limo came to a stop in a cattywampus position within its' Ambulance parking slot. This "parked" position of the Limo in combination with the raised concrete dividers alongside both sides of the car, left No Room for the wide hospital gurney to slide alongside the JFK Limo. The removal of JFK's body from the limo was a difficult process due to his feet being tangled underneath the jump seat(s) in front of him. The hospital gurney being unable to slide alongside the Limo further complicated placing JFK's body atop it. This area of Parkland Hospital being solely dedicated to Ambulances, explains why there was No medical personnel present with gurney(s) when the Chief Curry Lead Car & the JFK Limo arrived.

Hey,  Patrick.  You're pretty good for picking up on little things ... is that the limo in the first pic or is it a different one?
Trunk hood up or is it the engine hood up?  Why for either?  Bucket of water?  Yes, I know they washed the limo down
but what's that got to do with the engine or the inside of the trunk?  Is the roof up or down?

    You are seeing the rear of the Queen Mary at the extreme Bottom (L) of the photo. The Queen Mary was moved forward, (to where we are seeing it in this photo), at some point AFTER the Top was assembled atop the JFK Limo. You are seeing the Open Trunk Lid of the JFK Limo & a portion of the spare tire housing above it.

There were plenty of room in front to the right of the limo for the gurney. Back door of the limo were suicide doors and they opened backwards providing enough room to remove Connally and JFK.
