100 Years Ago In Cuba



An early color photomechanical print by prolific photographer William Henry Jackson of downtown Havana, Cuba, circa 1900. Made for the Detroit Publishing Company, this photograph shows one of Havana's main thoroughfares in the business district, Calle De Habana. At that time, Cuba was considered the jewel of the Caribbean.
