Inscription.  This building was the ticket office for Pan American Airways. The airline was founded in 1927 as a mail and passenger service. It operated between Key West, Florida and Havana, Cuba. Pan Am sold its first tickets for what turned out to be the record for the first over water international flight between the United States and Cuba. It was the principal and largest international air carrier and unofficial flag carrier for the United States from 1927 until its demise in 1991.
