Detail: The M.L.K. Window

street scene with roominghouse window and Alex and Doug

The pink building directly above the white car in the center of the picture is the rooming house from which the bullets came that killed Martin Luther King. I no longer remember which window it was (they tell you at the museum). We weren't able to take pictures of the buildings from the balcony on which M.L.K. was shot, because they don't let you bring cameras into the museum.
