Photograph of the Presidential limousine on Turtle Creek Boulevard

Black and white photograph of the occupants of President Kennedy's limousine on November 22, 1963. The photograph was taken as the motorcade was on Turtle Creek Boulevard at the intersection with Hall Street. The limousine is seen from its right side, from the start of the windshield to the back of the seats. Secret Service Agent Roy Kellerman is seen in the front passenger seat facing forward with his left arm slightly in front of him. He is mostly blocking the driver, Agent Bill Greer, whose back and head are partially visible. Governor John Connally is seated in the jump seat of the car facing towards the camera waving with his left hand. Connally's body mostly blocks the view of his wife, Nellie, but her face, turned away from the camera, is partially visible, as is the bouquet of yellow roses on her lap. In the back seat, President Kennedy is closest to the camera, facing forward, smiling with his right arm on the side of the car. Jacqueline Kenney is clearly visible seated next to him, also facing forward and smiling, with her left hand raised to the side of her face. A bouquet of dark roses is visible on her lap. A row of spectators are standing on the median on the other side of the limousine, mostly applauding. A station wagon is on the other side of the median with trees and a park visible behind. The photograph has a white border around all sides with "Nov 63" printed at the top center.
