    The photo above was taken in Logan, WV in 1960 and is featured in a LIFE gallery of unseen photos of JFK. See the full album here, which also features photos of Kennedy in Welch, West Virginia where Hollow will be filmed.
Photo Caption: While part of every candidate’s retinue, security was simply not the pressing, public concern in 1960 that it would suddenly and necessarily become within a few short years. Here, seemingly alone in a crowd in Logan County, West Virginia, JFK speechifies from a kitchen chair as, mere feet away, a young boy absently plays with a jarringly realistic-looking toy gun.
