CDR-1313: SR Set: Restoration in Havana, Cuba

The opening of the American Embassy in Havana, Cuba in August of 2015 has sparked increased interest in visiting the island. The elegant photography of Canadian Marlene Harris (prev. Hartill) of Veritas Imaging, opens our eyes to the amazing restoration of outstanding examples of early Spanish colonial architecture and some classic examples of early twentieth century in this once grand city of Havana. It is to be hoped that increased tourism will encourage and speed up work on an even wider scale. This Image Set includes examples of unrestored as well as beautifully restored buildings of great dignity. (September 2013)
