All eyes on Cuba

Cuba, the largest Island in the Caribbean, is known for its classic cars, vibrant culture, crumbling Art Deco buildings, and sugar cane farmlands.

The restoration of diplomatic ties between Cuba and the United States has headlined the news for the past week with both countries agreeing to establish open economic and travel ties, marking the most significant shift in U.S. policy toward the communist island in decades. 

Today, we feature a gallery of Associated Press photographs that spans from 1943 to present day Cuba.
