Camaguey Cuba formerly known as Puerto Principe

(Scanned from 1906 National Geographic magazine)

Street scene from the city of Camaguey Cuba, formerly known as Puerto Principe, a city of 25,000 inhabitants in 1906.

If you recognize the towers in the back, maybe a church or sugar mill, please give us an idea of the direction and name of street. If you have a photo, let us know and we’ll post it.

  1. The scene displayed here is clearly Republica street, formerly named Reina street (XIX century). The photo was taken from north, possibly from the balcony of the old Spanish cavalry regiment building or from the railroad tower, not sure. All references have changed. The towers in the back are recognizable. The one on the left is Soledad church building tower and the one on the right is the catholic cathedral tower by Agramonte park, both well preserved today. Those roofs are not standing (none) today. By that time this place was the northern limit of the city. A few years later many neighborhoods would be built out in such a direction.
