On a St. Louis history-related Facebook page a woman shared a photo her father took of John F. Kennedy when he visited Maplewood before he became President.
The photo is similar to another one of Kennedy the same day in a convertible on Sutton Boulevard near Greenwood.
The city of Maplewood on its website says the photo was taken in 1960. Kennedy became President in January 1961.
In the recently surfaced photo Kennedy appears to be near Sutton and Flora. The woman, Kathy Sokol Walker, said her father also took the photo (below) of President Harry Truman at Lambert airport. She said she remembers her father saying, “Mr. President do you mind if I take your picture?”
