TUESDAY OF CULTURAL PROMOTION

FROM CASTAÑER TO MAYAGUEZ

From among a sea of curves and as if rescued from the ether, an image of the already extinct and at the time known as the "Guagua Grande". Public transport vehicle driven by Mr. Lencho Flores, who in times of great need provided transportation services to mountain residents between Castañer de Lares, sectors of Maricao and the town of Mayagüez.

This wonderful photo was taken at the beginning of the '30s, during one of his usual weekly routes, near the old church "Santa Margarita" in the "Nicolás Cuevas" sector of the Bucarabones neighborhood of the town of Maricao.
