Period Paper has obtained an unusual collection of historical color and black and white print prints of the Spanish-American War. Following the sinking of the battleship USS Maine in Havana harbor on February 15, 1898, the United States declared war on Spain on April 25, 1898. The war ended on December 10, 1898 with the signing of the Treaty of Paris resulting in Spain losing Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, Guam and other islands in its overseas empire. Some of these prints are printed on heavy stock with no printing on the reverse, while others are on regular stock and may have text on the reverse. Although the condition of each print varies, this collection will be of interest to the serious history collector.
