Title: Cuban American men playing dominoes in Little Havana: Miami, Florida

Date: ca. 1975

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."

Public domain
This work was created by a government unit (including state, county, and municipal government agencies) of the U.S. state of Florida. It is a public record that was not created by an agency which state law has allowed to claim copyright and is therefore in the public domain in the United States.

Note: Works that are considered "public records" but were not created by a state or municipal government agency may be copyrighted by their author; the Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution prevents state law from overriding the author's right to copyright protection that is granted by federal law. For example, a state agency may post images online of the final appearance of a building under construction; while the images may be "public records", their creator (eg. architecture/construction firm) retains copyright rights to the image unless the contract with the agency says otherwise. See: Government-in-the-Sunshine Manual: To what extent does federal law preempt state law regarding public inspection of records?.
