    Gran Casino Nacional, La Habana

    Gran Casino Nacional at Marianao Beach, also known as “Casino de la playa”. The postcard is printed in gelatin photographic paper from 1926 to 1949 according the guide to real photo postcards linked below. The building was demolished in 1956, the fountains was moved and now there is an empty terrain there.
    Since the other things related to Cuba that I have found (silver coins and passengers lists) are from the lats 20s and early 30’s, maybe this postcard could be from 1929 to 1935.
