Description

Depicting Cuba’s Independence as its own nation after
being Spain’s first and last colony in the “New World,”
M. Carranza included these images among others in his
Souvenir Habana in 1899, directed towards citizens of the
United States to show them landmarks and form an identity
for the new nation of Cuba. This print shows images of the
Indian Fountain, Statue of Columbus, Governor General’s
Palace (occupied by the American provisional government
at that time), as well as the Spanish crown; revealing the
island’s indigenous origins, Spanish colonial past, and
achievement of its independence with the help of American
forces.
