Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Established in 1519 as a harbor city to service the fleets bound for Spain from Mexico and Peru, Havana became the busy portal to the vast Spanish colonial empire. Largely unharmed by war or weather, many great examples of Spanish colonial architecture survive today. Archival photographs from Havanaand#8217;s mid-20th-century heyday as a posh vacation spot are featured here opposite contemporary photographs, portraying a beautiful city undergoing restoration and struggling to regain its glory days.

Synopsis:

Dozens of archival photographs from Havana's mid-20th-century heyday as a posh vacation spot are featured opposite contemporary photographs, portraying a beautiful city undergoing restoration and struggling to regain its glory days.
