Traveling to Cuba to Deliver Old Photos


By Jon Lee

HAVANA TIMES — In 1979 I joined the US National Volleyball team to cover the NORSECA pre-Olympic volleyball tournament in Havana for Volleyball Magazine. My photographer, Bruce Hazelton, took hundreds of beautiful photos of Cubans — families in doorways, kids practicing at schools, dancers training, baseball players on the field and in dugouts, and children playing in the streets.

I just can’t throw these precious memories away, and I will be in Havana looking to find the people in the photos and their families to give them these priceless pieces of their past. I’ll be at Hostal La Rampa in Vedado from Jan. 24-31 and would love for anyone to contact me if they recognize anyone from the photos. (Hablo Español)  Tel. 7830 1514.

  • I found Ray Vicente Anglada and gave him a dozen pictures of him in 1979. I took he and his wife to dinner and it was wonderful. He’s a national baseball hero.

  • What great photographs! Thank you for sharing them here, and what a fine thing you are trying to do, to pass them on to the people in the images.
