New York: The Rotograph Company, 1904-1907.

One hundred years ago, postcards became an extremely popular fad. Men, women and children bought, traded, mailed and collected postcards of everything from sentimental sayings to views of places they had visited-if only in their dreams.

Cashing in on the postcard craze, the Rotograph Company printed as many as 60,000 cards between 1904 and 1911. Approximately 260 of them were of Cuba.
