A View of the Imperal del Paseo at Havana Cuba.

A splendid view of Havana's Paseo, which the accompanying article compares to London's Hyde Park as a gathering place for society. The Gleason's Pictorial article goes on to describe the customs and amusements of the city's residents and ends with the observation that despite the fine educational opportunities available in Havana, “many planters' sons are sent to [the U.S.] to perfect their education."
