    Description

    John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy: Courtship Sailing Photographs, 1953. Photograph proof sheet, 10" x 8", [Cape Cod, Summer 1953]. An original photographic proof sheet containing 12 images of John and Jacqueline Kennedy sailing JFK's beloved boat Victura in the waters of Cape Cod off Hyannisport in the summer of 1953 during their courtship prior to their wedding on September 12, 1953. JFK was 36 years old and Jacqueline was 24. Though unnoted on the sheet, the photographer was most likely Hy Peskin. Accompanying this lot is the July 20, 1953, issue of LIFE magazine, with a cover photograph and interior photographs of the couple taken at the same time by Hy Peskin. The proof sheet has a few light wrinkles. Magazine is worn. Otherwise, in fine condition.
