Another angle on La Rampa
Some time back, I posted this photo of La Rampa (Calle 23) at the Malecón, circa 1955, along with a link to a contemporary photo of the famous Havana corner.
The old photo prompted a reader to share his memories of working in the landmark building on the left that was home to Ambar Motors, Telemundo Television Channel 2 and other enterprises.
For our reader, here's another view of the corner today, this one looking north through the gas station that now wears the colours of the Oro Negro state brand. The car is a 1948 Chevrolet, delineated by its chrome as the popular Fleetline Aero model. It may well have been delivered new through the Ambar General Motors agency next door.
