Title:

Cuba and Mexico, 1891

Creator/Contributor:

Steadman & Trager

Abstract:

Album includes many snapshots and fewer professional photographs. The snapshots, which may primarily be of Cuba, are views of shoreline, ships and boats (some with American flags), dock workers hauling in boats, passengers, countryside, a couple in a buggy, interior and exterior views of large and lavishly decorated houses (with parrots sitting on chairs.) Other snapshots show bathers at the shore, workers, military drills, streets, carts, oxen, peddlers, street markets, men, women, children, lumber, and a train. Professional photos are of Mexico and show pre-Columbian ruins in the Yucatan (and elsewhere?) and posed portraits, mainly of women from various regions.
