U.S. ambassador returns from Cuba, 1959

In this photo Philip W. Bonsal, then US ambassador to Cuba, was coming back to Washington to report back on the all but hopeless degeneration in the relations between the US and Cuba. At the time, there were concerns about a growing anti-American bias of the Cuban government, the harassment of US financed businesses and expropriation of American property.
