Cuba: Feast your eyes: 1950s cars in Havana


After a few days in Havana you can become blasé about scenes like these.  And that would be a shame. So here are a few of my current favourites from Andrew's collection of over 14,000 pictures. 



These truly are ordinary, not extraordinary, street scenes but you won't find them anywhere else.  


Parked on every block, on every street corner are these wonderful 1950s cars. Tourist clichés? I would describe them as iconic.  
    























Some are battered, some are shiny.  Some swagger with sharp cut quiffs, others curve voluptuously. They ooze sex appeal and they are wonderful.
