Looking down the Avenida de Mayo towards the Argentine Congress in the 1910s.
Hey, I am from Argentina, most precisely from Bs As City. Did you live here, o come as a tourist? Very nice pictures by the way.
Our country used to be so glorious and grandiose. But everything ended when we adopte democracy, our perdition..
I was a student in Argentina for a summer many moons ago.
You are wise, Iván; welcome!
By the way, Andrew if you want to check out, I took some photos from “san telmo” a few weeks ago. Here is the link(http://anonymouse.org/cgi-bin/anon-www.cgi/http://liberticracia.blogspot.com/2009/07/fotos.html), you can post it if you want.
Sorry, that’s the link.
It’s been nearly a century since that picture was taken. May Argentina’s dreams of development and happiness be reborn and realised.
In the first moment I thought it is the “Rue de la Regence” in Brussels which looks very similar.
Dear Mr. Cusack,
thank you for your posts about Argentina & Buenos Aires. I’m a british born citizen of this country -my Argentinian parents where working in London in the Sixties-. I’m glad to find so many articles about items I like and opinions we both share.
As Ivan has referred, many of our splendour vanished with the worst of our political class. But this is still a wounderful people in a wonderful country.
