Kennedy locations in Dallas and Fort Worth

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:

Best wishes,

Ol’ South Pancake House in Fort Worth and the Cabana Hotel in Dallas. Both places were, according to some, visited by Jack Ruby short before the assassination. In these rumors he met criminals of the mafia on both occasions.
