IN RECENT MONTHS, we’ve brought you archived photographs depicting street scenes in New York in the early 1900s and life in 20th century Ireland.

This weekend, we’ve compiled a series of images collected in the archives of the United States Library of Congress which were taken in and around Havana, Cuba. The photographs were taken in the years surrounding the country formally gaining its independence from the US in 1902, and some of the iconic buildings featured (such as the city’s cathedral and the Hotel Inglaterra) are still in use today:
