About a year ago, while waiting for a flight back home to Illinois, I posted an amalgamation of assassination related photos that happened to be on my phone. Well, I am currently sitting at the airport waiting to fly to Illinois for my best friend’s wedding. I figured I’d resurrect the idea and post another set of random images that I have on my phone. Enjoy!
The plaque on the outside of the Petersen House.
Thomas Jones’ former home of Huckleberry.
An interior shot of Huckleberry. The door with the chair in front of it is the red, front door in the previous picture.
The Surratt House and Tavern circa 1944.
Edwin Booth had a copy of this photograph of his brother in his room at The Players.
Rich Hill circa 1971 before the addition and porches were removed.
Some schmuck next to Michael O’Laughlen’s headstone.
An exhibit case in the Ford’s Theatre Museum circa 1949.
CDV depicting the death of Booth in the Garrett’s barn.
Assassination author Michael Kauffman (background) speaking in front of Thomas Jones’ Huckleberry for an upcoming episode of National Geographic’s Diggers.
I could not help thinking, as I viewed the photo of the exhibit at Ford’s Theatre ca. 1949, how much more appropriate that simple display was than the hodge-podge of history that is exhibited there now…
