1954 Photographs of John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy in Georgetown

It was May of 1954 in Georgetown, Washington, D.C. and future president John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jackie Kennedy, were walking down the street. Meanwhile, a man named Orlando Suero took some pictures of them as they went about their day to meet John’s sister-in-law Ethel Kennedy and his brother Bobby Kennedy.

They ended up going to the park to toss a football around and just have a good time. While they were approaching the park, another man nearby made a whistling noise at Jackie. She was very shy about it but was upset that her husband didn’t do anything. When she asked him about it, John said that he couldn’t “fight every man in America.”
