A quick photographic triangulation shows that the location MACK WHITE is standing in the photograph to be from about where the FRANZEN's were located during the attack.
I found his description of seeing men, presumed to be investigators, looking through a tripod-mounted weapon located from the Dal-Tex Building, particularly interesting, given the authorities already had the, presumed, "lone nut" under arrest right next door....
We walked to Dealey Plaza, passing the Dallas city jail. My father told me that Lee Harvey Oswald was being held inside. This made a great impression on me, to think that inside that very building was the man who had done the horrible thing.
We were sure of Oswald's guilt. At that early hour, everyone was. It never occurred to us that his guilt might be less than a sure thing. The doubts would not begin until the next day, when local Mob man Jack Ruby appeared on the stage of history and shot Oswald while in police custody.
In front of the Texas Schoolbook Depository a man was selling copies of the Dallas Times-Herald. There was a huge stack of papers, but only a few people to buy them. Strange as it may seem now, tourists had not yet begun to arrive in Dealey Plaza in significant numbers. That morning it was mostly reporters and cops.
My father bought one of the papers (which I still have) and we walked around, my father taking pictures (which I also still have).
At one point, my father pointed out the so-called "sniper" window to me. As I was looking up, my eye wandered away from the window to the fire escape on the building across the street--the Dal-Tex building-where I saw two men taking turns looking through the scope of a rifle mounted on a tripod.
I was alarmed. "What are they doing?" I asked.
"It's part of the investigation," said my father.
So the police were checking out an alternative sniper perch. Evidently, that morning, there was still something resembling a real investigation. The investigation, of course, would end the next day with Oswald’s death.
Does anyone know of any documented reports by investigators of any Dal-Tex shots visual recreations performed on 23NOV63?
There are location points on the Dal-Tex from which an assassin(s) bullet(s) trajectory(s) pass extremely close to the warrenatti, supposed, "snipers lair," nearly duplicating the exact same horizontal, vertical, and lateral attack trajectory(s) angle(s) for the inevitable autopsy to follow the attack.

Sooner, or later, the Truth emerges Clearly
"Well, to me, it sounded high, and I immediately kind of looked up, and I had a feeling that it came from the building, either right in front of me (TSBD), or, of the one across to the right of it (DAL-TEX)." (my INSERTIONS)
