Moorman photo to be auctioned

Recommended Posts

.... Good Day Douglas.... This will be the 3rd attempt (that I am aware of)

that MARY has tried to auction her Polaroid photo.... The first attempt was on eBay in a

10-day auction that started April 16, 2007 (via the now-defunct “LegendSales.com”),

when she had an asking price of $500,000.... The photo was first publicly shown to

everyone on national TV on 11-22-63 at 3:19 PM Dallas time, precisely 2 hours and 49

minutes after the assassination. Shortly after that, her near-south-Elm-Street curb,

from-the-grass-captured, un-altered photo was also photographed close-up by United

Press International, and that U.P.I. photo-negative was utilized to make a print that was

transmitted to newspapers and then also widely publicized worldwide within hours.

Here is the actual MOORMAN Polaroid # 5 photo being shown to everyone on national TV

by NBC on 11-22-63 at 3:19 PM Dallas time....

Josiah Thompson (The history behind the Drumscan)

'll try to explain. In the spring of 1967, I was done with my LIFE assignment and was putting together all the details that went into Six Seconds. Mary Moorman's photograph was extremely important since it showed the knoll at Z 315. I had done some research with AP and Wide World in New York concerning the negatives and prints of the photo that they had. But the original Polaroid was sitting in Dallas. I paid Mary Moorman for the use of her photo in Six Second. Part of the deal was that she would let a professional photographer come to her house and copy the Polaroid. I hired a professional photographer to do this. He went to her home and copied the Polaroid using a medium format camera where the negative itself is about the size of Moorman's Polaroid. It was that negative from forty-five years ago that I had scanned in San Francisco. The drum scan resulting may turn out to be the highest resolution copy of the Moorman photo extant since the Polaroid itself has deteriorated further with each passing decade.
