Description

Dominican Republic 1940s Ad Poster, Sugar Cane Crops Worker, Alcoa Steamship Co. Sails the Caribbean, Poster Print.

Printed on a beautiful high gloss photographic paper.


PRINT SIZE: 8.5 x 12


A little Background:

Sugar cane was introduced to the island of Hispaniola in the early 1500s by Spanish colonists.

Until the mid-19th century, the Dominican sugar industry had been largely in command of criolloplanters. (Criollos were the descendants of Europeans who were born in America.) Cattle ranching had been the predominant economic activity on that side of the island; during the first four hundred years of the colony, sugar cane cultivation was never as prevalent in Santo Domingo as it was in neighboring Haiti, Puerto Rico or Cuba.

By the beginning of the 20th century, traditional Dominican export crops like coffee, cacao and tobacco had been replaced by sugar.

ALCOA is an american Alumiinum production Company since early 1800s.

Because of shipping shortages in World War I, Alcoa (formerly the Aluminum Company of America) developed its own shipping line to carry bauxite from its source in what is now Suriname and Guyana to aluminum mills in the United States and elsewhere.

Following World War 2, Alcoa Steamship Company acquired three unfinished Victory ship hulls in 1946 and entered Cruiseline business.

At first the line operated under foreign flags. From 1940 to 1969 it operated under the US flag.

In 1947 the ALCOA CAVALIER, THE ALCOA CLIPPER and the ALCOA CORSAIR established regular service between New Orleans and South America. The ships were modern and provided excellent service. But the mounting costs of U.S.-flag operations, forced the company to abandon their passenger service in 1960.

Other BOOKS are shipped in bubble envelope also, placed between two pieces of cardboard, to protect the book.

Additional policies

For Birthday Posters, I accept a limited personalization, like a favorite baseball or basketball club of that year, or anything else, which will fit in a small space on the poster.
Printed poster is shipped in 1-2 days.
Digital file for download is emailed usually the next day.
