Ernest Hemingway Pauses from Skiing to Pose for a Photo

Here's one way renowned author Ernest Hemingway liked to spend his winter vacation!

Photo via the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

The photograph above was taken in February 1927 in the village of Gstaad in Switzerland. At the back of it was a short note Hemingway himself had typed, which read, “This is to re-assure you if you hear reports of another of your authors dying of drink. Ernest Hemingway, Feb 1927.” Any guesses as for whom this note was?

All information in this article were sourced from the JFK Presidential Library and Museum.

This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!
