1960 Associated Press AP Wire Photo, John F. Kennedy JFK at Mormon Tabernacle For Sale
1960 Associated Press AP Wire Photo, John F. Kennedy JFK at Mormon Tabernacle:
Here's a vintage Associated Press (AP) Wirephoto from the 1960 John F. Kennedy presidential campaign against Richard Nixon. This shows JFK at the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah.
This is not a reproduction or reprint but rather is an original AP wire photo printed in 1960 and from the archives of the Dallas Morning News. This measures 8" by 10". This has a some curl to it but it would flatten out nicely if you put it between a couple books for a few days or if you framed it. This just has some very minor handling wear with a small surface crease near the top with nice gloss to it.
What is a wire photo?
Here's a quick explanation...a press photographer took a photo and made an original print from the negative and typed up a caption that was then affixed to the border of the photo. Then that captioned photo was inserted into a special machine and transmitted to newspaper offices around the world. By the 1970s, new technology led to wire photos being phased out and by now many of these original wire photos have been scanned in and destroyed, so these are cool pieces of history!
Shipping is $4.95. We have several other vintage AP wirephotos of related to JFK available and are always happy to combine shipping.
