Kennedy locations in Dallas and Fort Worth

22 Flares 22 Flares ×

September, 2013. With a rented car I visited all locations in Dallas and Fort Worth related to the crime of the century, the assassination of John F. Kennedy. I made lots of pictures; fifty of them are on this page. In 2009 I travelled to New Orleans, where Lee Harvey Oswald lived. The photos of that journey can be found here.

My name is Perry Vermeulen, born Dec. 08, 1982. I wrote two books on the assassination in 2008 and 2012, both published in the Netherlands.

A large Dutch article about my trip to Dallas and Fort Worh, published in Eindhovens Dagblad, can be found here.

Enjoy the photo’s – please contact me if you’d like to use them on a website or in a publication: info@perryvermeulen.nl.

Best wishes,
Perry Vermeulen

    Thanks for these beautiful pictures of such historic importance. I live in Papillion, NE USA about 650 miles north of Dallas. I have visited Dealey Plaza before but I have never seen the other places in your photos. I am planning on returning to Dallas and will use your photos as a guide.
