Passport photos of the famous

A collection of passport photos from the early half of the twentieth century of notable writers and artists, including Langston Hughes, Jack Benny, Walt Disney, and Edward Estlin Cummings better known as E.E. Cummings. I concur with the collector’s insightful comment:

The quality is pretty gritty, but I find them interesting, not the least because they are glimpses of these people without their artistic personas showing. Just another traveler submitting to the demands of the state.

We all must submit if we wish to travel to Cabo for spring break. Kidding.
