Primelles 420 e/ Daois y Velarde. Municipio Cerro, Ciudad de la Habana, Cuba.

Construida en 1903, Unica casa de esta cuadra que mantiene su fachada original. Note la doble puerta de madera, tipica de casas de puntal alto.

Richy,

That is a beautiful picture of a very classic home, it is more than 100 years old !

It still conserves all the details, awesome door, classic columns, and original rustic wrought iron window grills. It would be interesting to see the tiled floors inside.

The wrought iron process is very labor intensive, a laborer have to hold the metal with tongs and "work" it under a hammer. The last plant producing that type of metal in the US closed in 1969.

Please if you have more picture of these houses and the Cerro area upload them. There are very few pictures of the Cerro neighborhood on the web.
