    If you have not figured out, this is a street “icee” vendor usually seen around Cuban beaches. The bottles contain syrup of different flavors. They had an ice block in the middle of the cart covered with a burlap sack. He had an ice scrapper to do his thing. I just remotely transported myself to my childhood. strawberry 🍓 flavor was my favorite.

  2. The ️ is pointing to a truck carrying some members of Castros revolutionary army. Castro took over on January 1st 1959 in Havana however this photo was taken few days later in my hometown of Santa Clara, 🇨🇺 Cuba. A large % of the population wanted a change which culminated in the change of government which has been a disaster for 61 years. No political comments intended, just facts. I think there is a Buick on the photo but the VW bug is blocking the view. Can’t tell what model it is.

    Nope - no Buick, at least not at that time, but it did happen later. She drove an almost new '67 Toyota Crown station wagon (Maybe a luxury dream of a Chevy II Knock-off?) Overhead Cam Straight-Six, Stick with Overdrive, and her father (a Pharmacist) had an Olds 88, the Boat and "Weekend Palace", a fantastic "camp" at Grand Isle, LA (barrier Island at the Gulf of Mexico) for off-shore fishing, skiing, shrimping, and generally good times. 

     

    We eventually bought a new Buick, among other things, but traded the Toyota for a Citroen DS-21, later a series of Citroen models including the Citroen Maserati-engined SM sport coupe, 2-CV, DS-21 Pallas, three different D-21 station wagons, Ami-6, and others. Trimacar (David) got us back going down the "Antique" road back in the 1970s, and we've never regretted the cars, friendships, and memories - driving the "Lower-48" and more.

    Growing among 🇺🇸 American cars, Citroen 🇫🇷 cars were a frightful thought. I remember reading about a model that could be driven with only three wheels.
