This charming poster was created in the waning years before the U.S. embargo, when Cuba was widely open to global access and travel. In this design, a Cuban tourist chooses where he'd like to visit next with the airline, which at the time was still owned by Pan Am. Two state-of-the-art Constellation planes takeoff overhead. It is a rare poster from pre-embargo Cuba.
Cubana de Aviacion, commonly referred to as simply 'Cubana', is Cuba's nationally-owned airline. Founded in 1929, it is one of the oldest airlines in Latin America. International flights began in 1945, with routes expanding from Miami to Bermuda, Lisbon, and the many other locations shown in this poster. The company was overtaken by the new government of Cuba in 1959, as part of the Cuban Revolution.

If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.
Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
