    This photo was taken at the beer garden of the La Tropical brewery (Cerveceria La Tropical) in Havana, Cuba. From Tropical Brewery postcard: "Owned by the Tropical Beer Co. it is a paradise of beautiful flowers and exotic plants. This beauty spot is visited by thousands of tourists. Free beer is given to all visitors." From "Cuba and It's Music: From the First Drums to the Mambo, Volume 1" by Ned Sublette:  "These social clubs also had picniclike festivities , complete with the music of their homeland as well as habaneras and danzones, at the sumptuous new gardens opened by the La Tropical brewery. Cerveza Tropical was Cuba's first domestic brand of beer, brewed since 1891. The vast Jardines de la Tropical complex on the Rio Almendares, created in imitation of the grand beer gardens of Germany, opened in 1904. If the numerous overhanging trees made La Tropical a little dank in the winter months, in the sweltering tropical summer it was the coolest spot around. La Tropical's competitor, Cerveza Polar, opened up their own gardens. By the 1920s, these festivities attracted up to fifiteen thousand people." From the personal photo collection of Jay Cashman.
