What Dallas, Texas looked like in the 1960s Through These Fascinating Photos

The population of Dallas at the beginning of the 1960s was around 679,684 and the city was thriving. The racial integration of public facilities began on August 15, 1961, when African Americans were sent to lunch counters and businesses throughout the city for equal treatment. The Dallas and Negro chambers of commerce appointed a biracial committee to devise a publicity campaign and notify business owners of the event, which proceeded without incident. Public schools were integrated more slowly, and the district remained under court supervision for decades.

On November 22, 1963, Dallas experienced its most traumatic event when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated a few yards from the site where John Neely Bryan had settled in 1841. After two days, Jack Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner, killed Lee Harvey Oswald before television cameras.

Here are some stunning photos that show Dallas in the 1960s.
