Hemingway House Photos

The photo on the right is of the typewriter upon which Ernest Hemingway wrote For Whom the Bells Toll, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, and a number of other best-selling novels and short stories. This photo is cropped from the photo below, which I took in December, 2011. This was Hemingway's "studio," located on the second floor of the little cottage located behind the Hemingway Home, a Registered National Historic Landmark, in Key West, Florida (907 Whitehead Street).

907 Whitehead Street, Key West, Florida.

And a brisk walk from the Hemingway Home & Museum, you'll find the restaurant and bar where Hemingway enjoyed hanging out and visiting with friends. It was here he relished catching up on local gossip, following a day of fishing. He did his writing in the mornings, usually starting about 6:00 A.M. I enjoyed lunch there with my private plane pilot in December, 2011, ordering their "classic Sloppy Joe sandwich." You can visit Sloppy Joe's website by clicking here. They feature a webcam that's live whenever the restaurant/bar is open; located at the corner of Greene and Duval Streets since 1937.
