Inspired by the release of documents related to the President John F. Kennedy assassination, this post presents relevant photos made from television sets and screens.

Many frames from the Abraham Zapruder 8mm film exist as photographic prints in ICP’s collection. You can read about the stills from the Zapruder film in an old post on Fansinaflashbulb.

The Collection of records of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination was available online through the database of the National Archives. Today additional records were released online.
