Republic of Cuba

Kubaiak Jönnek 1917 — 'The Cubans are coming in 1917'. Against a yellow sky, on a smooth blue sea, a cigar submarine floats, a curl of smoke drifting from its lighted tip. An upright matchbox forms a conning tower, and a Cuban flag flies above it. Palm trees grow on a tip of land in the distance. A watercolor postcard by Schima Martos.
