What Else Happened In Dallas On The Weekend Of Nov. 22, 1963?

November 24, 2013

I found this interesting.

Among the items in the commemorative reprint of the Dallas Morning News November 22, 1963 were a wide variety of other news stories.  Such as–

• A pre-Christmas sale (yes, the Christmas rush started before Thanksgiving even in 1963!) offered layaway plans ($1 down for any item to hold it till Dec. 24, with as little as $1.25 per week) at Goodyear Service Stores. A 19-inch portable TV with free (regularly $12.95) mobile carry-cart was $149.98, featuring the highly desirable “daylight blue” picture, a handsome hi-impact Polystyrene cabinet and “slim silhouette styling.”

• A concert starring Johnny Cash, June Carter and George Jones was planned for Saturday night at the Sportatorium, with tickets priced at $1.75. At SMU’s Coliseum, Peter, Paul and Mary were to perform Saturday evening, at the bargain price of $1-$2.
