The mystery of the Babushka Lady - Clearly shown in several photographs is a woman with what appears to be a camera of some kind in front of her face, pointing directly at the president’s motorcade when the shots were fired. She is located close to the street, and had an extremely good vantage point for capturing the events surrounding the shooting.
Babushka lady is on the left, close to the road and wearing a scarf. The Babushka Lady is a nickname for an unknown woman present during the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy who might have photographed the events that occurred in Dallas' Dealey Plaza at the time President John F. Kennedy was shot. Her nickname arose from the headscarf she wore similar to scarves worn by elderly Russian women (бабушка – babushka – literally means "grandmother" or "old woman" in Russian).
In the hours and days following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, investigators would rely heavily on statements by spectators of the motorcade. Clearly shown in several photographs is a woman with what appears to be a camera of some kind in front of her face. Photographic evidence shows that instead of running away after the shots were fired, as many people did, the Babushka Lady continued filming the procession. She never came forward.
Who was the Strange Babushka Lady? Several photographs showed a woman with a supposedly camera in front of her face pointing towards the President’s motorcade even as the shots were fired. She is seen standing at the best vantage point, very close to the motorcade. She is seen wearing a scarf of light brown colour. This head scarf has earned her the name Babushka Lady in reference to similar scarf worn by the Russian grandmothers known as Babushkas.
The mystery of the Babushka Lady - Interestingly, a Dallas film developer later told FBI agents that he had developed a single color slide brought in by an unknown woman. The slide was somewhat blurry, but from the developer’s description, it matched up as being taken from the spot the Babushka Lady was standing — or very close to it.
