on photos from the train

I found this site a few years ago and went looking for it again last night.  The photos, taken on June 8, 1968 from inside Bobby Kennedy's funeral train, show mourners, about a million by some estimates, lining the tracks to say goodbye.  They are beautiful and powerful and heartbreaking all at once. 

The Times ran an interactive feature on these photos with the photographer's narration.  You can find it here.
