On the 50th anniversary of the death of president John F. Kennedy, it is interesting to note that more time has passed between then and now then had passed between then and the assassination that set off World War One. Yet it still remains fresh in the minds even of those unborn at the time...

George Bannerman Dealey (1859-1946) was a Dallas businessman and the long-time publisher of The Dallas Morning News. He used his influence to accomplish many goals but will always be remembered primarily for one of them.

He crusaded for the redevelopment of a particularly blighted area near downtown Dallas. When the redevelopment, involving a large square located at the intersection of three major avenues, was completed, it was named Dealey Plaza in his honor.

Railroad tracks over the triple underpass - note the parking area behind the Elm Street pergola. In lot was a switching tower occupied by a Lee Bowers at the time of the assassination. I've had email conversation with a relative of his.
