Room 26 Cabinet of Curiosities

Hats on a shelf; Chairs on a porch

Posted in Beinecke Library, Yale Collection of American Literature by beineckepoetry on July 24, 2008

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 (http://beinecke.library.yale.edu/dl_crosscollex/). 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.]
