Priceless photos of Kennedy motorcade found under Fort Worth Texas bridge

November 24, 2009

(ChattahBox) — A treasure trove of historic American photographs were found dumped underneath an  Interstate bridge in South Fort Worth Texas.  Among the photos found according to Kens5 News Station in San Antonio, were scenes from the Kennedy motorcade, just moments before his assassination, a young President George H. W. Bush and Gwendolyn Brooks, the first African American to win a Pulitzer Prize. Surprisingly, the pictures found in file folders, weren’t damaged at all and were cataloged with typed labels on the front or back.

Apparently though this wasn’t some private collection accidentally thrown away.  The Genealogical Society had a break-in about 5 years ago and the photos were likely stolen from the building. Where those photographs have been since is the mystery, but perhaps someone gave in to their guilty conscience, since the photos could probably have been individually sold off to private collectors if someone was out to make money.

    More likely the thief was too stupid to know the files were valuable; as a rule, other than “white collar crime,” criminals really are fairly ignorant, and many of them are downright stupid. The CEOs of large insurance companies, are, of course, quite intelligent and know precisely what they are doing.
