Description

Caption, Yglesia y Convento de Belen (Habana). Urban scene, showing, among other figures, a black man pushing a wheelbarrow, others carting loads on their backs, and a liveried coachman waiting by a carriage in front of the convent. This illustration was, in fact, done by the French artist Frederic/Federico Mialhe, who lived in Cuba from 1838 to 1854; see, Emilio Cueto, Mialhe's Colonial Cuba [Miami, The Historical Association of Southern Florida, 1994], pp. 38, 40 for the same image and when it first appeared.)
