Photos of the old Coca-Cola building in Havana

Coca-Cola's slogan in 1959: Be Really Refreshed

Here are photos of the Empresa de Bebidas y Refrescos on Santa Catalina between Palatino and Vento. along La Polar highway at Línea del Ferrocarril in Cerro Municipality.
A taxi driver told me this is the site of the old Coca-Cola plant in Havana. A portrait of Fidel Castro hangs at the entrance.
