Picturesque Album of the Island of Cuba (Álbum pintoresco de la isla de Cuba), is a book from 1854, illustrated with prints of Cuba. Its authors are Pierre Toussaint Frederic and Federico Mialhe.
In these prints there is a tone of amusement that already anticipates the images of sensual Cuba of the first half of the twentieth century.
We edited the Picturesque Album of the Island of Cuba because we were fascinated with the joy of the popular types that appear in it.
This fasciscidal edition begins with a “Picturesque Plan of Havana with the numbers of the houses” and the following legend:

“The numbers placed on the blocks indicate the largest of the houses on the sidewalk in the center of which they are. Thus, it is easy to know e.g. that the house n. 114 Calle del Obispo is located between the streets of Havana and Aguiar; because in one of the sidewalks of this block are included the houses that lead from n. 111 (which is the one that follows 110, greater between Compostela and Havana) to 115, indicating the last of said block that the house n. 109 calle del Sol, must be between those of Cuba and Aguiar. “
