- Sign to Rafael Martinez's cigar factory Ramar Cigars - Miami, Florida
- Accompanying note: "Aside from customs, beliefs, games, music and foodways, traditional crafts are part of folk culture. Cuba has long been noted as a cigar-making capitol in the world. When Cubans immigrated to Florida, they brought with them the folk knowledge of how to prepare and cure handmade cigars. These traditional skills are still practiced in the Florida centers of Cuban population: Key West, Tampa, and Miami."
- "Cigar-rolling is a traditional skill, learned in Cuba, that has enriched Miami's small industries."
