Cuba en 1925 Photograph Album

Identifier: MS Group 216

Scope and Content

The photograph album cover is entitled "Cuba en 1925" and includes the name of Commandante Mario Gajate. The album was produced for collectors of photographic cards packaged with cigars and cigarettes, and each page includes the phrase, "Susini, El Cigarro Sin Rival." The pages are assigned headings and grouped topically, primarily around geographic regions such as cities and provinces. A number of pages pertain to people, places and things in Havana. Each photograph card has a caption, and each page has a numbered space for the cards that should be included on that page. Although most of the approximately 1675 cards are included in the album, there are a few spaces where cards are missing.
