Cuba: Yesterday and Today

A number of years ago, I inherited an album of old postcards from my great aunt Nora. At the time, I thought what good are a bunch of old post cards? The album turned out to be a treasure of old photos that captures a time long past and I love them. Viewing them, I imagine my grandparents courting, sitting on a park bench, chaperone nearby or later, taking my mother and her siblings for that Sunday drive in the countryside.
I’ve come across another postcard collection; this one will transport you back to an untarnised Cuba B.C.
For your viewing pleasure, one hundred years of architecture and life through postcards at Hilda’s Cuban Postcard Museum.

  1. what a treasure trove. Amazing she could get that out of Cuba. I have only a handful of photos of the Cuba my grandparents and mother saw. You may want to consider publishing that collection. The copyrights have probably since expired.

  2. Mike, I didn’t mean to mislead, this postcard collection is not mine, it’s Hilda’s. I wish mine were as wonderful as this one.

  3. Dear Ziva,

    Thank you so very much for posting the link to this unique collection. It is, indeed, a treasure that Hilda has put together for all to see. I agree that it would make a terrific coffee table book. This site may encourage other collectors to share their cards.
    Cuba Libre!
