☞ REMEMBER: A Harlem Speakeasy circa 1935
As far as the timeline is concerned, we guess that this photo was taken in the mid 1930s based on the suits worn by the gentlemen and one other major clue. To the far left of the photo one can see a gentleman in white who appears to be Langston Hughes. Harlem's most famous poet looks a little older here in the photo and history has it that the Mr. Hughes permanently established roots in Harlem by 1930.
