A hint from history


Library of Congress Prints and Photographs


Wilhelm II, Emperor of Germany, sits in a throne, sword across his lap, and reads by candlelight papers labeled "Plans for German colonization in South America." The ghost of Maximilian, Emperor of Mexico, looms above him as "a hint from history." On the floor are scattered papers labeled "South American mortgages" and "South American investments."
