A 'vue d'optique' of Havana, designed to be looked at through a zograscope, with the title in reverse above the view. The naive style of colouring is standard for these prints, but the English version of the title is unusually inept. In the foreground are a number of ships, including a galleon firing its cannon. The chain boom can be seen across the entrance of the harbour.
