From our Bureau of Potentially Lethal Nostalgia
The four postcards below, published by the Bacardí industry, poke gentle fun (now condemned as “sexist”) at the presence of US troops in Cuba in the first half of the last century and their encounters with Cuban women. Their titles refer to military maneuvers: Reconnaissance, Interception, Convoy-duty, and Infiltration
Hard to imagine such a Cuba ever existed. Lord have mercy. In 1959 there were more Americans living in Cuba than Cubans living in the U.S. , and more Europeans migrating to Cuba than Cubans migrating anywhere.
The social and political dysfunction that allowed the Castro dynasty to come to power and destroy that Cuba is beyond comprehension.
