User: Hotel Presidente
Date of plate: 1928
Notes: The 10-story vermilion-and-beige Hotel Presidente was built 1925-27 and is still in operation in Havana (Ciudad de la Habana) Cuba. The city's first skyscraper, it received a restoration in 2000, with great care taken to preserve the more than 400 pieces of art that are housed there.
From a 1929 Hotel Red Book: "A Bit of Park Avenue in Habana Cuba … 150 rooms from $12 up."
Floral border with lemons and dark green line; well of plate has tropical beach scene with palm trees on a Black Knight body.
