Kingston, Jamaica: A. Duperly & Sons, 1907-1915.

Tourists visited places easy to reach from U.S. ports, especially Nassau, Cuba and Jamaica. Entrepreneurs in these countries quickly realized the economic benefits of tourism and began printing their own literature for tourists. While U.S. publications tended to be associated with specific steamship lines and their passengers, Caribbean postcards and booklets targeted all tourists.
