Cuban American men playing dominoes in Little Havana - Miami, Florida.
"Little Havana" : Folklife in Miami Slide/Tape Program
Accompanying note: "Hispanic traditions are visible everywhere in 'Little Havana,' where Latin folklife is a wonderful asset to commerce and culture. Dominoes is a game that has great popularity throughout Latin America. In Miami the game is a favorite of the Cuban community. The game of dominoes is traditionally played by men, and true to tradition, in 'Domino Park' one will not see women participating. As with many other forms of folklore, this game is gender specific."
"Along Eighth Street we stop at 'Domino Park' where men play this traditional game, so popular in Cuba and Latin America, with ivory tiles handed down from father to son. At any hour of the day or night one may watch the lively action and animated debates of the domino games."
