Dallas newspaper on the shooting of Oswald...

Item # 675905

November 25, 1963

THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS, Dallas, Texas, November 25, 1963 

* Best Lee Harvey Oswald assassination issue to be had
* Post JFK John F. Kennedy murder
* Jack Ruby

Terrific and most unusual issue, as the entire front page--save for the banner headline: "Night Club Man Kills Oswald -- John F. Kennedy's Body Borne to Capitol" is taken up with a huge photo showing Jack Ruby thrusting his pistol forward in the direction of Oswald and others, a split second before Oswald was shot.

There are many more related photos and headlines inside this 48 page issue. A great issue for display, and great to have from the city where it happened.

Of curious interest--and only to be found in a Dallas newspaper--in a inconspicuous advertisement on page18 for the 'Texas" movie theater, where Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested (trivia: he was watching the movie "War Is Hell": see photo)

Other news of the day throughout.  Nice condition.
