The Streets Of Old Havana



In Havana, Cuba in the first decade of the 1900s, milk was delivered door to door by "el lechero" on horseback, pictured above in a photomechanical print.



Meat was delivered by wagon. This picture was made by the Detroit Publishing Company in 1903.



This circa 1900 broom and rug peddler plied his trade on foot.

Seeing old photos really gives a window to the past... How much the world has changed over the decades! Happy Weekend, Golden West! :o) ((HUGS))
