Click on an image to enlarge it. These antique photographic images are of Cuba, Cubans, the Cuban landscape, and the U.S. military occupation of the country as a result of the Spanish-American War of 1898. The images come from the massive 1899 two-volume set Our Islands and Their People. The photographs are simply stunning and incredibly rare.  Each image is accompanied by a thorough description.  Please note that several of the captures use archaic Spanish spelling (e.g., "La Puenta" for "La Punta").
