Nov. 1, 1960: Chris Morales, a regular Daily Mirror reader, asked if I could find any photos of John F. Kennedy’s visit to East L.A. Community College. Here you go, Chris. The top photo shows office workers at 8th Street and Broadway waving to Kennedy’s motorcade. The bottom photo shows Kennedy at East L.A. Community College’s stadium, accompanied by his sister Patricia, Adlai Stevenson and Sen. Clair Engle (D-Calif.).

And if any Daily Mirror reader has personal recollections of meeting Kennedy or Vice President Richard Nixon  during the 1960 presidential race, please send them in!
