BOX 28 Three t-shirts, 1990, circa 2000s
Two t-shirts date from circa 1990: a small red t-shirt and an x-large white t-shirt, both with an image in black of Lena Spencer and her Siamese cat, Sasha. These are accompanied by a letter from Dirk Westervelt, explaining the history of the t-shirts (as a fundraiser to keep Caffè Lena in business after Lena's death). The third t-shirt is large, in black with a colorful design on the back depicting the Caffè Lena building front and the motto "good folk since 1960." The front of the t-shirt has a smaller design, in white with black letters: "Lunch at the Ritz Studios / Beekman Street Galleries."
