Comments
The sketch of Laz Pozas accompanies an article, "Three Weeks in Cuba, by an artist" (pp. 161-175). Shows house types and village layout. Laz Pozas, the author writes, "is a charmingly-situated village . . . Beyond it are vast forests . . . [which] afford secure retreats for runaway negroes..." (p. 175)
