Description: Original black and white photographic negative taken by Dallas Times Herald staff photographer William Allen Friday afternoon after the assassination - between 12:30 and 1 p.m. This image shows the exterior of the Texas School Book Depository. Dallas Morning News reporter Jim Ewell can be seen in the foreground of the image. Cars, people and police officers crowd around the base of the building. Windows are open on the building's upper floors, including the southeast corner window on the sixth floor. Piles of boxes can be seen through that window in an area that was later identified as the sniper's perch. The Hertz sign on the roof is partially visible.
