Physical description

Black and white photograph depicting two men in uniform on either side of a woman in a crowd in Havana. The three figures all regard the photographer with different expressions; one man appears surprised and holds on to the shoulders of the woman, who purses her lips, whilst the other man strokes his chin and appears mildly confrontational.
