United States Embassy, Havana Cuba, 1953
the year I was born. This photo shows my father, a U.S. Information
Service Public Affairs Officer, in front of the brand-new U.S. Embassy
in Havana, Cuba. As we
know, that didn't work out too well, but after
many years, it's about to be a U.S. Embassy again. Next - perhaps we'll
end the embargo.
This is the old US embassy and USIS offices, 1953:
