A Pile of Bags
Clemente Soto Vélez and Amanda Vélez Papers, 1924-1996
Clipping from Revista Temas of a photograph of a pile of grocery bags. Probably the ones prepared for Christmas Eve 1955, when the Puerto Rican Merchants Association was giving away groceries to all those who wrote a letter to them, over 1,500 bags were distributed.
