Below the picture an inscription reads:

 Havana. – We now leave St. Augustine – one of the most famous resorts for invalids in the New World – and proceed to Tampa by the Jacksonville, Tampa, and Key West Railroad.

Our train leaves St. Augustine in the morning after breakfast, and arrives at Tampa and Port Tampa in time for dinner.

This affords a delightful ride through some of the most interesting parts of the State, and includes occasional glimpses of the St. John River and the beautiful lakes and orange groves of South Florida.

Port Tampa is the Southern Deep Water Terminus of the Plant Line of steamers.

This company has erected on the pier a hugh hotel, which overlooks the translucent, amber-coloured waters of Tampa Bay, and is designed on the lines of an old Moorish palace.

The Plant steamers leave Port Tampa at 8 p.m. on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and arrive at the Cuban capital at 6 a.m. on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Mondays; a stop of several hours is made on the way, at Key West, whence the distance to Havana is 101 miles.

The entrance to Havana, with Moro Castle and the Cabana fortifications on the left, and the Castillo de la Punta on the right, is very picuresque, and of continuous and increasing interest.

The traveller may hire a capable guide, who will show him the Cathedral, the tomb of Columbus, the theatres and public buildings, the Spanish Governor’s palace, the forts, public squares, markets, sugar estates and factories, and the numerous walks and drives in the vicinity.

Havana is a city of 300,000 inhabitants, and is situated on the north side of the island, directly south of Florida.

Steam ferries and street cars render easy the access to the various suburbs of this beautiful city.
