The Streets of Havana by Emilio Roig de Leuchsenring is an essential document for understanding the historical and urban evolution of the Cuban capital. Published in 1936, this book is part of the “Cuadernos de Historia Habanera” series and focuses on the nomenclature of the streets of Havana, advocating for the restoration of old, traditional, and popular names that were changed after political and administrative shifts.
This book details efforts to regulate the naming of streets, a task that, according to Roig, was necessary to correct the inconsistencies and disorder introduced from 1899 to 1933. The text documents specific name changes and the reasons behind them, and exposes the cultural and identity implications that these changes entail for the city and its inhabitants.
The Streets of Havana calls for the preservation of the city’s cultural heritage, highlighting how the names of the streets reflect the history and values of the community. Additionally, the book discusses the administrative procedures and decisions behind the street naming, showing the role of various organizations and political figures in this process.
This work is not only a historical record but also a critical resource for urban planners, historians, and anyone interested in the history of Havana, its memory, and its urban space. Its detailed and well-founded approach offers a comprehensive and enriching view of how urban space can be a reflection of politics, culture, and the identity of a city.
