Green Library Gallery: "Winter in Cuba" Exhibit

"Winter in Cuba" offers a glimpse of the heyday of travel and tourism in pre-1950s Cuba.  The Elena Kurstin Collection of Cuban Memorabilia is a treasure trove of postcards, menus, brochures, magazines, and even swizzle sticks from hotels, night clubs and the haunts of many a mobster of that period.  This exhibition gives a glimpse of the Havana so popular with tourists... not only what to see in Cuba, but how to get there by air or by sea.
