Union Club, a social club in Cap Haitien - 1907
Here is a picture of Union Club which was a social club in Cap Haitian on the beginning of 1900s
The 1800's were the golden age for Cap Haitian, then called Le Cap, or, The Cape. The town was legendary in the French Empire and was viewed as the richest colony under the French cap. The wealth of the city had much to do with the one hundred thousand coffee trees being harvested there. The Cap Haitian of the present, by comparison, is a struggling, over-populated city. Luckily untouched by the 2010 earthquake, the city has a chance to retain some of its former glory through tourism and its ready-made appeal to the industry.
