Meat Wagon



Welcome to Havana week here at OPOD. We will be looking at old photographs of the city of Havana, Cuba. Because of the various embargoes and restrictions, it is hard to visit Havana these days, so we will take a virtual tour with old photographs. Today's picture was taken in 1903, and it shows a meat wagon used to deliver meat.

  1. I am from Cuba, of course I live in Miami (LOL), but I'm not an extremist Castro hater. Try to visit Cuba you will enjoy it!

  2. The U.S. govt. shows such hypocricy where Cuba is concerned. WE all tourism for nations such as China (not a bastion of democracy in any way), yet Cuba is off limits.
    And with all the debate over immigration adn "waiting your turn"...if a Cuban can find his way to these shores he is automatically granted citizenship. Seems pretty biased to me. But of course, its all based in Florida politics.

    To get to Cuba, fly out of Toronto.
