Colorful Photos Of Americans Partying In Pre-Embargo Cuba

What happens when a black and white photographer brings rolls of color film to Cuba? The results look like a box of confetti and 50s fashion ads.

German photographer Heinrich Heidersberger hopped on a cruise to Cuba back in 1954. Camera in tow, he wandered the streets and captured lively scenes of tourist opulence and style.

These were the days before Fidel Castro took power, meaning Americans still counted on Cuba as a holiday destination.

Brimming with hectic energy, Heidersberger's photos reveal a forgotten style of American tourism. Cuba was a playground for America's rich in the 50s and for good reason.

The Caribbean island boasts delicious sun, food, and style, making Heidersberger's shots appear like a collection of mixed candies and tropical fruit.
