Black and White Havana Photos from 1960s
As anyone reading this could plainly see, I am in love with Havana. This is a city that has more character than any other on earth. From the eccentric, generous people, the the old, charming architecture, there is always something wonderful to see in Havana, whether you are in Old Havana, Central Havana or Vedado.
And, the amazing thing about this city is that, in many way, aesthetically, it is like a time capsule, preserved for decades, but open for the whole world to see. Not only are the cars mostly the same today as they would have been 50 or 60 years ago, but the buildings, street signs, layout and colors are almost identical as well. It’s an amazing sight to see.
Below, I have a presentation of some gorgeous old Havana photos, from the 1950s and 60s. For anyone who has visited the city recently, you will immediately see that, Havana has not changed much at all. In fact, if these Havana photos were colorized, you would probably have trouble determining if they were taken yesterday, or a half century ago. Enjoy this montage and allow your mind to think back to “the old days” or start dreaming about Havana, or start planning you next trip!
