Are these two photos legit?
« on: February 09, 2022, 03:38:46 AM »
I’m sure this has been discussed before...
If these two photos are legit, how are the different “sniper nest" box setups explained?

AND if the president is going by, why would anyone take a picture of these two guys on the fifth floor?
Who took both photos?

It would be good to know the time sequence between the two...

The one on the right was taken by Tom Dillard, the chief photographer for The Dallas Morning News. He was in camera car #3 of the motorcade. Bob Jackson was in the same car right behind Dillard. Jackson saw the rifle in the sixth floor window but his camera was out of film. He pointed the window out and Dillard took two photos just seconds after the shots as their car turned the corner in front of the TSBD.

The one on the left was taken by James Powell who was a half-block away when he heard the shots. He ran to the intersection of Houston and Elm and asked a man where the shots came from. The man pointed up to the upper floors of the TSBD. Powell then took the photo. So, I believe that Powell’s photo was taken shortly after Dillard’s photo.

In that sequence, it would seem that Dillard and Jackson at least would have focused attention on that window long enough to see someone stacking the boxes at the window before Powell took his photo… if I understand it correctly…

You definitely don’t understand something. The boxes were apparently stacked at the window well before the motorcade arrived in Dealey Plaza. Camera car #3 was eight cars behind the President’s limo. Jackson saw the rifle being pulled back inside the window. By the time the photos were taken the assassin had apparently already left the window. So, I don’t have any idea why you think they could have seen someone stacking the boxes.

If the left photo was taken shortly after the one on the right... then someone apparently stacked the boxes at the “sniper nest" window in the short distance of time between the two photos...

If it is correct as you say, "By the time the photos were taken the assassin had apparently already left the window”... it should raise a question... who stacked the boxes up against the window in the left photo?

Like in a circus? A bunch of conspirators frantically ran over to stack boxes.  Then they slid down a rope and escaped in a clown car.  Maybe the photos show slightly different perspectives.

For once, and I can't believe I am saying this, I have to agree with Richard Smith
