Stormy waters break over Havana's Malecsn seaside avenue in 1998, but the surf doesn't slow the flow of rickshaws and classic U.S. automobiles.
"I think that the steel they made cars from in the 1950s must be tougher than today's materials," photographer David Alan Harvey said. "People drive those old cars in salt air and even drive them in flooded areas where the ocean comes over the [seawall]. But they don't seem to rust out and those guys keep them up somehow, they're able to just keep them going.
"Many now have Russian engines," Harvey continued. "I've even seen little forges where they are melting metal to make parts to rebuild these engines."
Like Havana's famous classic cars, the city's seawallbuilt by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineersis another relic of a bygone age.
