DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Dallas museum chronicling the life and death of President John F. Kennedy has added several items visible in a Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph of Jack Ruby shooting Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza announced Friday the additions as the nation marks the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s November 22, 1963, assassination.

New items include the tan suit worn by police Detective Jim Leavelle and the handcuffs that linked him to Oswald during the attempted jail transfer. Also added were Ruby’s gray fedora and the Nikon camera Dallas Times Herald photographer Bob Jackson used to make the photo.

The museum’s permanent exhibit is on the sixth floor of the former Texas School Book Depository, where investigators say Oswald set up his sniper’s nest. The Museum collections consist of some 40,000 items related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
