The front of this cover promotes their advertising publishing business (they published Cuba's Mercantile Directory among other things) while the back of the cover concentrates on their other businesses as Importers and Factory Representatives of a broad range of products and manufactures like knitting machines, adding machines (sic: Maquinas de sacar cuentas), inks and varnishes for printing and lithography, jewelry, optical and watchmaking materials.
