BOSTON – The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has hundreds of Kennedy family photos watch online, the making of a nation still obsessed with Camelot a candid new perspective into their daily lives.

The Boston museum says it has completed an 18-month project to catalog and digitize more than 1,700 black-and-white Kennedy family snapshots.

Many of the photographs are ordinary snapshots of the typical American family life in the first half of the 20th century. They show the future president John F. Kennedy and his family on holiday, mugging for the camera and photobombing each other.
