Notes

General Note:
Written on verso: "View of the driveway connecting Havana and Vedado showing huge portions of the new concrete seawall broken up by the waves during the storm on Sept. 9th, 1919. They were carried entirely across the new boulevard being constructed along the seawall, then over the double street car track and finally deposited in the middle of the roadway at the foot of Santa Clara battery, as shown. These blocks were so large and heavy that it was necessary to blast them into smaller sections for removal. The rough slabs in the foreground are pieces of the concrete base of the new boulevard mentioned above." "Photo by Harris Bros., Co., O'Reilly 104, Havana, Cuba." Also: "Used 1919." Probably used by the Munson Steamship Line in their publication, The Cuba Review.
