Colegio La Salle in Santiago de Cuba
I posted this photo in Jun 2010 and was under the impression that it shows Fidel Castro and his classmates at Colegio La Salle. I thought that I spotted Fidel Castro in the back row.
A reader - a former La Salle student who says he's in this picture - tells me the photo was taken in 1957 and Castro isn't in it because he was already in the Sierra Maestra. Any other LaSalle students recognize the photo?
July 2 update:
Several more readers say they doubt Castro is in the photo. Emilio Ichikawa, an accomplished cyber-sleuth, dug up a second La Salle photo, below. As you can see, Castro is wearing a dark school uniform, very much unlike what students are wearing in the photo above. This is an official photo that appears on the Cuban embassy's website in Hungary.
