EDITORS COMMENTS
This photo print, taken in the 1890s but reproduced in the 1920s, captures a powerful moment of history - "The blessing of the Spanish troops". In this image, we witness a significant ritual that took place before these brave soldiers embarked on their journey to war. The scene unfolds against the backdrop of Cuba's urban landscape, showcasing both its colonial charm and religious fervor. As we gaze upon this elevated view, it becomes evident that Christianity played an integral role in shaping the mindset of these Spanish troops. With heads bowed and hands clasped together in prayer, they seek divine protection and guidance for what lies ahead. This poignant display of faith serves as a reminder that even amidst conflict and strife, spiritual solace can be found. The historical context surrounding this photograph is crucial to understanding its significance. It harks back to a time when Spain exerted control over Cuba as part of its colonial empire. The image subtly hints at notions of power dynamics between nations while also shedding light on the deep-rooted religious beliefs prevalent during this era. Preserved through time by The Print Collector29 collection, this cigar card from Geografico Universal offers us a glimpse into an important chapter in Cuban history – one marked by struggle for independence from foreign rule. Through this snapshot frozen within monochrome tones, viewers are transported back to the early decades of the 20th century when conflicts raged across North and Central America. Let us cherish such prints as windows into our past
