Written on verso: 'Old Spanish cannon at Cabannas sic, with Havana harbor in the distance. Each of the old guns bears the date of its making and is designated by a name and other inscriptions and ornamentation. Cabannas sic and Morro? are little more than 'show' places now and during the tourist season are thronged with sight-seers every pleasant day. Our view shows a party of them in the distance, listening to the Military Band playing in the shade of the great laurel trees.' Also: 'Used Sept 1926.' Probably used by the Munson Steamship Line in their publication, The Cuba Review.
