Photos - Myself, my Father & Mother in Cuba, 1959, 1957, 1949


In 1959 my father took me to Cuba when I was six years old.
My dad had a Roliflex camera that he would use hand held and also on a tripod with a self timer. He took hundreds of photos, many that I still have.

I'm standing on the back of a cracker truck,
in front of the 'Capitolio'.

This Man carried the dog in that blue box, the dog
came out of the box and did tricks while I watched.

I'm looking at mannequins in the window
of a store that sold uniforms.

A magician was doing tricks in the street,
my dad took
a photo of me squatting down and watching.
