Antique Panoramic View of Havana Cuba

DESCRIPTION: Antique folding half-tone panoramic view of Havana, Cuba (1904) titled "Havana Harbor and City." A very fine view from a brochure by the Seaboard Air Line Railway "Cuba" promoting the route of the Peninsular and Occidental Steamship Company's steamship from Port Tampa to Key West, Florida to Havana.

A drawing, resembling a photograph, showing a panoramic view taken from the perspective of La Cabaña, (Fortaleza de San Carlos de la Cabaña). At upper right the view shows Morro Castle and lighthouse at the entrance to Havana Bay. Across the bay, the city of Havana shines, while sailing vessels and steam powered ships ply the waters of the bay. A reviewer of the period described the work as:
    … a panoramic view of Havana Harbor and City superbly reproduced in half-tone, the sky and water effects being especially meritorious, showing skillful overlay and press-work." [1].
Brochure printed by Edgell Press. Cover to brochure included.
