Biographical/Historical Note

The collection comprises 35 albumen photographs from a disbound album of views of Chile, primarily of Santiago, but also including images of Valparaíso and rural subjects. The photographs are by an unknown maker and were likely taken in the 1880s. The 23 views of Santiago include the central plaza, the House of Congress, the the Teatró Municipal, two views of the Alameda, the Quinta Normal, two views of Santa Lucia Hill, three images of the Recoleta church and monastery, and La Caridad. Views of private residences include those identifed as belonging to a Señora Cousiño (four views, external and internal; also included are two views of the Cousiño estate in Lota) and a Señor Concha (two views). One image depicts a Corpus Christi procession in the streets of Santiago.
