    Background: The Visnews cameraman in Havana was on the quayside, and despite protests by the authorities and the passengers, managed to get these scenes of passengers on the last ferry boat from Havana, to Key West, Florida, USA, October 31.

    The ferry boat took on board between 100 and 150 cars, mostly belonging to diplomats. There were few Americans on board, as most who had reason to leave Cuba have already gone by other, faster, means.
