Description

This cover for the Hotel Lincoln in Havana, Cuba, may have been printed for presentation or approval as it is pasted at the top to a heavy blue stock. A pen and ink sketch of President Abraham Lincoln is featured in an oval gold-colored border. Except for the portrait the whole cover is a gold-colored background with design, floral decoration, and text printed in either dark brown or faded black ink. The hotel name and address are printed beneath the portrait. A 1929 calendar was attached below the text. Two holes for hanging are on either side of the center in the top margin. A heavy black or dark brown rectangular border extends to the edges of the cover. Part of the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection, courtesy of the Indiana State Museum
