Postcard of the Week: Havana’s Malecón

The Malecón (meaning ‘seafront’ in English) in Havana, Cuba, is a landmark of the city and a great place to stroll and get a bit of fresh air. By night it’s equally entertaining. These two separate postcards show how Havana has adapted between 1926 and 1957. Cuba nowadays is beginning to import a few foreign and more modern cars but these 50s American cars are still found absolutely everywhere and really add to the flavour of the country.
