Eisenstaedt & Hemingway

In 1952, LIFE sent legendary photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt to Cuba to shoot author Ernest Hemingway. The magazine needed photos to run alongside a new novella that would run in LIFE before it was published in book format. That book was “The Old Man and the Sea,” and the issue of LIFE where it was first printed went on to sell 5.3 million copies in two days.

Characterful and colourful the Deli on the Corner café – one of Cambridge’s most popular – is home to much visual delight.
