I have seen the famous historic photograph of Jack Ruby shooting Harvey Oswald by the Dallas Times Herald news photographer Robert H. Jackson a hundred times. I have driven down Commerce Street thousands of times but until February 2021 I have never connected this garage door with the event captured in the photograph. Now, this door shines like a dark beacon reminding me how hate and intolerance can turn to tragedy.
2009 Commerce St. Dallas TX.
