We just can’t get enough of the Visual Instruction Department Lantern Slide Collection this summer … So we’re planning to release a set every week. Yes, I know, sun and a weekly release is almost too much!
Since summer is finally heating up in Oregon, and not to be outdone by the last “take a trip” set from Palestine & Syria, this week we’re heading to Argentina.
Views from the harbor and from the city, scenes from the streets and from the gardens, this set is full of beautiful historic images from Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Chaco, Mar del Plato, and La Plata.
It showcases the city, rich with history and chock full of monuments!
Want to travel to the Plaza Lavalle to see the Lavelle Monument and Colon Theatre, stroll down the Avenida de Mayo, catch a streetcar on the Paseo Colon? Care to catch a play in the open air theater for children? Horses at the Hippodrome? And did we mention the monuments, cathedrals, and capital buildings?
Don’t worry, there are hotels and subway train station shots for those who like to plan!
So pack your bags and join us for the trip — and make sure you stick around to see the cowboys … (Seriously, there are pictures of cowboys.)
