Views of Chile

Scope and Content of Collection

This collection of albumen prints comprises photographs from a disbound album depicting views of Chile, primarily of Santiago, but including images of Valparaíso and rural subjects as well. The photos are by an unknown maker and probably date to the 1880s. The 23 views of Santiago include the central plaza, the House of Congress, 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 that of the Cousiño family (four views, external and internal; also included are two views of the Cousiño estate in Lota). One image depicts a Corpus Christi procession in the streets of Santiago.

Photographs were originally mounted recto and verso; the photos from versos are now split from the mounts.

Titles from English captions are handwritten in ink on mounts above the images.


Disbound album; arranged by cataloger.
