Passports from Paradise

ByEnrique Corneiro

The 20th century brought many changes to the people of the Danish West Indies. For almost 250 years the islands were Danish and suddenly everything around them changed all at once when the United States purchased the islands in 1917. With the world on the verge of entering World War One, everyone needed a way to prove their nationality and their loyalties. Photography became extremely important and this book presents some of the very first photographs ever taken of Virgin Islanders.
