On a night in Paris in 1928, Hemingway went out with Archibald MacLeish and his wife. At home in his apartment at Rue Férou around 2 in the morning, while relieving himself Papa reached for the cord to flush the loo and instead grabbed the cord for the skylight bringing it down on his head. MacLeish drove him to the American Hospital at 63 Boulevard Victor Hugo where he required nine stitches. He told his editor at Scribner's that he wrapped his head in toilet paper to stop the bleeding. When news of the incident got into the press he received a message from Ezra Pound. "Haow the hellsufferin tomcats did you git drunk enough to fall upwards thru the blithering skylight!!!" The original of this image (minus the colorization, blood stains and other creative decisions) was taken a day or so later. The lady in green is Sylvia Beach the owner of bookstore where they stand called Shakespeare and Company.
