Zapruder film: Images as history, pre-smartphone
This image made available by the National Archives shows a 1963-1964 photograph of the movie camera used by Abraham Zapruder when he filmed the moment of the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. Standing on a 4-foot-high concrete pedestal, his receptionist bracing him from behind, the 58-year-old Russian immigrant followed the progress of JFK's blue Lincoln limousine as it rolled toward him down Elm Street.
