On The ‘Gram – Jul 18, 2020

Ernest Hemingway’s 2nd wife was so sick of his shit, when he went off galavanting (and womanizing, falling in love with his 3rd wife…), Pauline Pfieffer turned his prized boxing ring into this magnificent swimming pool, which is still the largest residential pool in Key West and cost a cool $20,000… (and this was during the Great Depression in 1938). When Hemingway returned and found out about the costs, he supposedly flung a penny on the ground, saying “Pauline, you’ve spent all but my last penny, so you might as well have that!” which is memorialized in the concrete at the house & museum.
