Voices from the Beinecke Library

Hats on a shelf; Chairs on a porch

From a series of photographs gathered by Langston Hughes of the Club Atenas in Havana, Cuba, 1931.
[More photos can be found in the Beinecke Digital Image database ( Search for the keywords "hughes cuba".
[These calm, enigmatic scenes are also perfect to mark the one year anniversary of the launch of Room 26 - showing the type of curious intriguingly and beautiful material we look for in our collections.]
