Two different people posing as a 'Babushka Lady'
« on: August 04, 2021, 10:12:43 PM »
I think there is enough photographic evidence to strongly suggest that TWO different people were posing as a 'Babushka Lady' in Dealey Plaza on 11/22/63.  In the image below, the two left images are of BL in the Muchmore and Bell films.  The two right images are from photos by Jay Skaggs and William Allen.  In the two right images there is a strap on the outside of the overcoat.  There is no indication at all of an exterior strap in the two left images.  Also, the BL in the two right images appears to be shorter and stockier, and the lower legs between the two groups appear to be different.

The strap in both Bell & Muchmore can just about be seen, albeit very faint due to poor quality recordings.

If there is no strap, what is holding up her Camera Case (seen in both Bell and Muchmore) over her stomach, Supr Glue?

The Allen photo crop on the right side of the OP graphic has incorrect aspect-ratio.

   

That was interesting for all of one minute.

the BL in the Muchmore and Bell images has the carry bag strap underneath the overcoat.  the BL in the Skaggs and Allen photos has the carry bag strap on the outside of the overcoat.

One BL_1 was present during the assassination, then some time after that BL_1 was replaced with BL_2.



BL_1 and BL_2 are two different people.

The Bell film may have actually captured the switch between BL_1 and BL_2.  There is a break in the footage at ~49sec into the film.  At ~48sec into the film we see BL_1.  Then there is a break in the footage, then we see BL_2.




here is a side by side comparison of the two BLs seen in the Bell film



BL_1 is on the left (no exterior strap).  BL_2 is on the right (exterior strap is visible).

BL_1 and BL_2 are also visible in Wilma Bond photos 8 and 9.



BL_2 is on far left of Bond 8 and BL_1 is center right in Bond 9.  These photos are available at:
projectjfk.com/shaw-legacy

Take note of the bystanders 1-5 in both photos.  These two photos must have been taken within seconds of each other.  These two photos prove, for all practicle purposes that BL_1 and BL_2 were in two different places in Dealey Plaza at the same time.  They must have been two different people.

"No strap" in the Muchmore Film?



"No strap" in Bell Film?

consider the following two images:



the image on the right clearly shows a strap across the back.  additionally, the strap is cinching the overcoat to the left side of her rib cage area.

the image on the left has no indication of a strap across the back.  not only that, but the left side of the overcoat is clearly hanging freely from this person's rib cage area:  if the strap was on the outside of the over coat, it would not do that.
