Altgens LOS straight over the head of the croft ladies, and then through the gap between the white column and the large tree.

only three of the Croft ladies appear to be visible, in the critical yellow square area. ( in between the white column and the large tree )

Thanks for these posts today, Robin. For those of us who have never made it to Dealy Plaza in person, they add a better perspective to the photos and drawings we've already seen, and help us understand the things we DO know, just a wee bit better.

For anyone who in hindsight questions or denigrates John Kennedy's position on civil rights, I want you to look at the many smiling, clapping joyous black people, ladies in the Croft photo 10 seconds before JFK's murder.

The civil rights movement was at its peak in this era; the March on Washington had been a mere 2 months before and JFK had welcome the leaders of the March into the White House.
