James Joyce and Sylvia Beach standing outside of Shakespeare and Company

James Joyce and Sylvia Beach standing outside of Shakespeare and Company

Sylvia Beach and James Joyce, outside her bookstore, Shakespeare and Company.

(A much better scan of this photograph is available here (as “a photo of Beach with Joyce”), but I prefer this one, since it hasn’t yet been cropped. I wonder if that boy at the second-floor balcony knew the importance of the figures standing below him, or that his image was to about to become a part of our cultural history..)
