Andrew Giel visited Cuba as a tourist 10 times between September 1955 and December 1959, traveling as far as Trinidad in Santi Spíritus. Fifty years later, Mr. Giel printed 8 x 10 enlargements from the original transparencies. Those prints are found in this collection. They include views from across the island, including Havana, Trinidad, and Santiago de Cuba. In January 2016, Mr. Giel donated color prints of his original donation, titled "Cuba in Color" to the Cuban Heritage Collection.
The 1955 slides were made with an Argus C4 camera and the later slides with a Leica IIIF.
