Scope and Contents

c. 1952-1954.  An album of 23 leaves containing 46 gelatin silver prints photographs bound with a leather cover with the Argentine seal on it.  The album is divided into five sections:  Vivienda (Housing and Neighborhoods), Cultura del Cuerpo y del Espiritual (Sporting, Educational, and Cultural Facilities), Sanidad (Clinics and Hospitals), Abastecimiento (Markets), Circulación y Transportes (Traffic and Transportation planning).  The album was intended as a propaganda tool used by the Juan Perón administration to showcase its progress toward the modernization of Buenos Aires by the early 1950s.  The images show numerous buildings and facilities that were recently built, under construction, or in the planning stages.  Some of the photographs are of models, artist renderings, or blueprints of proposed buildings.  Other photographs depict maps of barrios or transportation networks.  All of the photographs are identified and accompanied by written text.
